I am an economist and philosopher. My research is in moral and political philosophy. I am primarily interested in questions of distributive justice and the structure of value that these questions give rise to.
I am an assistant professor of Ethics and Political Philosophy at Tilburg University and a postdoctoral research fellow at Utrecht University.
I obtained my PhD from Tilburg University in 2020. In my PhD thesis ‘Desert, Luck, and Justice’, I analyze the relevance of the concept of desert for contemporary theories of distributive justice.
I have a BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences from University College Utrecht (2011, cum laude), an MSc in Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics (2013) and an MA in Philosophy and Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam (2015, cum laude).
During my first master’s, I spent a semester at Sciences Po Paris (2013). During my PhD, I spent a semester at the Philosophy and Law research group at Pompeu Fabra University (2016) and the Philosophy Department of Yale University (2018). During my postdoc, I spent a term at Worcester College and the Department of Politics and International Relations of Oxford University (2020).
I am a member of the Tilburg Center for Moral Philosophy, Epistemology and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) and the Rotterdam Axiology Platform (RAP).
