I am a political philosopher with a specialization in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE). My research interests span education policy, collective decision-making, institutional design, and the history of political thought.

I have followed my passion for ideas across three different continents and counting. When I’m not writing next to a flat white, you will find me walking, biking, hiking (often while listening to podcasts), debating, dissecting politics, or pretending I’m a contestant on Chopped in my kitchen.
