I work in ethics, political and social philosophy, from the interdisciplinary perspective known as Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). More specifically, I am interested in the philosophical dimension of political corruption, the rule of law, and the state. I have also worked in the history of political philosophy (early modern). And when I am not doing any of that, I write about topics like failure, moral talk, or open borders.
