In 2017-2018, I have completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Ethics and the Environment research axis of the Centre de Recherche en Éthique (CRÉ). My areas of specialization are in normative ethics, animal studies, contemporary political philosophy, and feminist philosophy. I studied philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire (BA), the University of Cambridge (MPhil), and the University of Sheffield (PhD). Since completing my PhD, I have held posts as a Teaching Fellow in Political Philosophy at the University of York (UK) and a Postdoctoral Fellow in Animal Studies at Queen’s University (Canada). Much of my research has focused on contemporary theorising about global justice. Given the vast inequalities that exist between individuals worldwide, and the role that the existing global order plays in producing and maintaining those inequalities, I am interested in determining what moral, political, and economic duties we have to one another globally. In recent work I have argued that cosmopolitan theorists of justice and defenders of animal rights must endorse a sentience-centred cosmopolitanism. On this view, the protective sphere of justice extends to all sentient animals regardless of species or national membership. Thus, sentient animals are the primary units of equal moral concern, and the basic interests of all individuals must be considered when determining what we owe to one another globally.
As a Postdoctoral Fellow at the CRÉ, I have looked at elaborating a sentience-centred cosmopolitan approach that can guide us in determining principles of cosmopolitan inter-species justice. I was particularly interested in how the interests of nonhuman animals should be represented in international political decision-making and how taking their interests seriously has normative consequences for our theorising about duties to mitigate and assist in adaption to climate change, food security, sustainability, and the global trade in animal bodies. Furthermore, I aimed to develop a capabilities-based view that can both secure justice for all sentient animals and pay due respect to the noninstrumental value of some non-sentient entities, such as plants and ecosystems.
