My interests lie in moral and political philosophy and practical rationality, as well as intersecting areas in economics and politics. I am especially interested in issues of distributive justice, including ones arising across states and generations. My current work examines how egalitarian distributive principles should accommodate concerns with risk and with personal and collective choice and responsibility. It also explores how such principles should guide the design of social institutions that shape the prospects of children, parents, the elderly, and future generations.
