My work explores how the resources of political and legal philosophy can shed light on topics in normative and applied ethics. I am currently working on three main projects. The first investigates how theories of political authority and obligation impact on debates surrounding the ethics of causing harm. The second project focuses on the morality of defensive force, and the ethics of using force to defend others in particular. The third explores the ethics of public health policies, and especially the question of the extent to which objections to paternalism apply in public health contexts.
