Academic Interests

My research interests are mainly within political philosophy. My PhD project examined contemporary Lockean justifications of territorial (jurisdictional) rights. In my postdoc project, I continue to work on issues of territorial justice, but I now focus on the ethics of migration and the just distribution of natural resources. I also work on normative issues related to voting rights. 


I received my PhD in Political Science (University of Oslo) in 2013. I was appointed Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Political Science, University of Oslo, in September 2013, and I spent the academic year 2015-2016, as Visiting Postdoctoral Research Associate in the University Center for Human Values, Princeton University.
