About me

Before joining the LSE I was lecturer in political science at the Australian National University. There I taught courses in research methods, contemporary political theory, and the history of political thought. My principal research focus is investigating the constraints that social science can bring to bear on political philosophy (most recently looking for clues in modal logic).
