Personal profile

Research interests

I am a postdoctoral resercher at the Faculty of Law, Maastricht University. Before this, I was a Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellow in Law at Oxford Brookes University, as well as a re:constitition fellow for the year 2020/21.

My monograph, 'Rightful Relations with Distant Strangers: Kant, the EU, and the Wider World', (see below) was published in March 2021 by Hart/Bloomsbury Publishing. My monograph is based on my PhD thesis, which was awarded the 2020 René Cassin Thesis Prize (English section).

Alongside Ester Herlin-Karnell and Gerard Conway, I co-authored 'European Union Law in Context', which was released in September 2021 also by Hart/Bloomsbury Publishing.

My research explores the implications of Kant's philosophy of right for issues of contemporary relevance in various areas of public law. My main focus right now revolves around environmental law, the regulation of public goods, and the commons. Please get in touch if you're also interested in these subjects.

You can follow my work on, Researchgate, and SSRN.

Finally, check out my new podcast 'GLAW-Net: Conversations about Globalization and Law', now available on Apple, Spotify, and others.
