Personal profile

Research interests

I am PhD Candidate in Political Philosophy at the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS). My project is supervised by Dr. Bart Engelen, Prof. Dr. Maureen Sie, and Prof. Dr. Serena Olsaretti. My primary research interests are in theories of distributive justice (especially desert-based and luck egalitarian ones) and philosophy of taxation. My secondary research interests are in theories of well-being and philosophy of death. 

I have a BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences from University College Utrecht (2011, cum laude), an MA in Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics (2013) and an MSc in Philosophy and Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam (2015, cum laude). During my first master's, I spent a semester at Sciences Po Paris (2013). During my PhD, I spent a semester at the Philosophy and Law research group at Pompeu Fabra University (2016) and the Philosophy Department of Yale University (2018). I'll spend Trinity Term this year on a research visit to the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford University (2019).

I am one of the editors of the Erasmus Journal for Philosophy and Economics and the Dutch Philosophy blog Bij Nader Inzien. I organize the TiLPS political philosophy reading group. I co-organize the peer review circle practical philosophy for the Dutch Research School for Philosophy. 

I organized the 2018 OZSW PhD summer school 'Ethics and Economics' and co-organised the 2015 OZSW PhD summer school 'Emotions and Moral Agency'.
