I am Professor of Philosophy (cross-appointed to the Faculty of Law) and Queen’s National Scholar at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. My research interests focus on questions of equality, human flourishing, procedural justice, socialism, and cultural heritage. I’ve published six books and over 60 articles and been honoured by invitations to speak at forums such as the Ralph Miliband lectures at the London School of Economics, the Australian National University Moral, Social and Political Theory Seminar Series, the University of Arizona Centre for Philosophy of Freedom, as well as invited talks all over the world – e.g., Jerusalem, Sydney, Havana, Chicago, Oxford, San Diego, and Prague. Before taking up my present position at Queen’s, I worked at York University (Toronto), Leiden University, Leeds University, and the University of Oxford. I’ve been honoured with Visiting Fellowships at the Australian National University, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and All Souls College, Oxford. I was recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. I’ve served on review bodies such as the European Research Council. I enjoy being a mentor for graduate students, who I meet regularly in a research group we call ‘The Justice League’. I was honoured to receive the Queen’s ‘Excellence in Supervision’ award in 2018.
