Research

Ph.D. in philosophy. My main research concerns the normative dimension of climate change, or more specifically, a fair distribution of the costs and benefits of dealing with climate change. A related research interest is intergenerational justice, that is, questions about justice between generations. In addition to that, I have a general interest in political and moral philosophy, and in particular their methodological underpinnings and John Rawls's theories and methods. I have also done research and teaching on human rights.

Currently, I'm the PI of an interdisciplinary research project (funded by the Swedish Energy Agency) about a just transition to a low-carbon future. The project addresses the following research questions: (1) What kinds of grievances does the transition to a low-carbon economy give rise to?; (2) What moral principles should be used to systematise and explain these grievances?; and (3) how can these grievances be dealt with in a fair way?
