I work on political philosophy, applied epistemology, and applied ethics. Much of my research is at the intersection of philosophy and economics, such as the ethics of debt, global tax justice, and the social purpose of corporations. Find out more about my research.
Together with Boudewijn de Bruin, I developed the Intellectual Virtue Scale, a survey of the individual traits that support knowledge and understanding. Take the survey.
I also aim to bring philosophy to pressing political and ethical questions in business and the public sphere. I founded Twelve Stars, a project that starts a dialogue between citizens and practical philosophers from all over Europe to discuss proposals for the future of the European Union.
My background is in both philosophy and economics. I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Cambridge, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Groningen.
