For my PhD, I am working on developing a neorepublican ideal of distributive justice. This topic allows me to combine my passion for issues of distributive justice with my interest in the nature of freedom. I first developed an academic interest in both these questions during my Bachelors in Liberal Arts and Sciences, where I was able to consider both from various – and interdisciplinary – perspectives. Amongst the latter, I have most enjoyed the philosophical one, and hence opted for an MA in Political Philosophy. More specifically, I am intrigued by republican philosophy, and have taken inspiration for both my MA thesis and now my PhD from this fascination.
