I am currently Perkins-Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at the Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts and a Lecturer in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. As a Principal Investigator and Research Fellow at the Centre for Law, Economics, and Society at University College London (UCL) and UCL’s Centre for Blockchain Technology I have also been working on a research project on electronic currencies.

At Princeton I serve as a Faculty Fellow at the Scholars Institute Fellows Program (SIFP), Princeton’s support program for first-generation and low-income students.

I received my Ph.D. with departmental and university distinction in Political Science from Yale University in 2016. Prior to Yale, I graduated with first-class degrees from the University of Oxford (B.A. in Philosophy, Politics and Economics) and the University of Cambridge (M.Phil. in Political Thought and Intellectual History). During my doctoral research I received Yale’s Ardon L. Judd Fellowship and was a Junior Research Fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) in Vienna. 

Having studied economic theory and analytical political philosophy as an undergraduate, I subsequently turned to the history of political thought and wrote my M.Phil. thesis on Max Weber and modern political thought. I have since combined these interests in politics, history, and economics by working on the history of ancient and modern political thought with particular regard to economic questions.
