I am a philosopher working on a range of issues with philosophy of biology, philosophy of social science and political philosophy. I also try to find a synthesis between my ideas in these different areas as can be seen in my first book, The Epistemology and Morality of Human Kinds (Routledge, Focus in Philosophy series) that is just out this year (2021).
I am currently an Associate Professor at Aarhus University, Department of Political Science where I am l leading my own 3-year Sapere Aude Research leader grant, funded by the Independent Research council in Denmark. The project investigates what a historical/reproductive accounts of membership (that I have argued for elsewhere) can tell us about the basis for group rights (e.g. affirmative action, minority rights). Do read more about it on our website or in this interview.
I am a core member for the New Centre on Experimental Philosophy of Discrimination, (CEPDISC) and an affiliated scholar of the History and Philosophy of Science department, Cambridge University.
Along with the excellent Caterina Marchionni (Helsinki) and Julie Zahle (Bergen), I have received an exploratory workshop grant for the Nordic research councils to probe types of reactivity in the human sciences that is currently running 2019-2021.
Something short about my academic background. I completed my undergraduate and MA in Stockholm, my PhD at the Philosophy department at King’s College London (April 2012, supervised by David Papineau). During 2013-2015 I was Research and Teaching Associate at the History and Philosophy of Science department, Cambridge University and between October, 2012 and June, 2018, I was a researcher at the Centre for the Philosophy of Social Sciences/TINT in Helsinki, Finland.
