- Social and Political Philosophy
- International Justice
My area of specialization is in political philosophy, and I am especially interested in problems of global justice, nationalism and human rights. Currently, I am thinking about a book-length project with the working title “Human Rights and Social Justice in a Diverse World”, and working on papers on toleration. At Penn, my teaching, which reflects these interests, includes courses on global justice, political philosophy (historical and contemporary), ethics, and specialized courses on topics such as distributive justice, multiculturalism and human rights. I have also taught courses in philosophy of law, biomedical ethics, and introduction to philosophy (freshman seminar).
