Overview

My background is in Medicine, Public Health, and Philosophy. These come together in my trans-disciplinary research agenda which revolves around gaining greater conceptual clarity into the well-being of people belonging to marginalised groups. This calls for an understanding of causal pathways; the role of institutions and informal social configurations in ameliorating or worsening people’s circumstances; and what is owed to those served least well by society.

  • Philosophy

  • Cultural Studies
