I am an Assistant Professor of Political Philosophy at the University of Groningen, Campus Fryslân. Prior to joining Groningen, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher for a H2020 project REDEM on the ethics of voting (Sciences Po Paris) and for a project on public life and religious diversity (University of Oxford). I specialise in contemporary political theory, the ethics of decision-making (compromise and voting) and religious diversity.
