Biography

I am senior lecturer in political theory and I was previously a research fellow at the Centre for Research in Ethics at the University of Montreal (CREUM), a Hoover fellow at the Chaire Hoover, Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium and a lecturer in political theory at University College Dublin. Research interests: theories of rights (group rights, human rights, conflicts of rights), distributive justice, especially luck egalitarianism, global justice, and justice in health. I'm currently finishing a monograph tentatively entitled 'Global conflicts of rights' and starting a new five-year project on 'Rights and Egalitarianism' funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant. 
 

Research Interests

I am currently working on a monograph entitled 'Global conflicts of rights'. I'm also writing on the idea of equality and egalitarian theories of justice and their global application as well as justice in health, in particular the philosophical assumptions and implications of the social determinants of health framework.
Some of my papers in progress are:

  • ‘Can there be positive human rights?’
  • ‘Partial equality or justice?’
  • ‘Voluntariness, freedom, and freedom of choice’
