Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis at the University of Canberra


I joined the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance in 2015 as a postdoctoral research fellow working with Professor Dryzek on his Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship project Deliberative Worlds: Democracy, Justice and a Changing Earth System.

I completed my PhD in normative political theory at the University of Essex (Government department) in 2015 with a thesis on the ethics of multiple citizenship. My thesis discusses the moral legitimacy of different grounds of acquisition of multiple citizenship as well as its consequences for collective decision-making and global justice. It also advances a series of policy proposals to reform citizenship as we know it.

I am interested especially, but not exclusively, in global (economic) justice, epistemic democracy, immigration ethics and citizenship, and deliberative democracy and broadly in applied ethics and democratic theory.
