Political Philosophy, Ethics, Bioethics
Lehrstuhl für Philosophie IV
I am currently completing my PhD at New York University and will be starting as a wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (postdoc) at LMU in the Summer semester. I have diverse interests in ethics and political philosophy. I also have research interests in Wittgenstein (particularly the later philosophy), in history of political thought, and in bioethics. Much of my recent research concerns migration, citizens, and equality. In particular, I explore how current practices of governing migration and distributing citizenship create problematically inegalitarian social relationships between persons within and between states. On the basis of my diagnosis of the egalitarian problems with contemporary migration governance, I explore the institutions regulating global mobility might be reimagined to facilitate, rather than to hinder, equal social relations between persons.
