I am a political theorist whose research focuses on normative democratic theory, comparative constitution-making, and social epistemology. I am a college lecturer in politics at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford. From October 2018, I will be a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, University of Oxford.

My research engages with epistocracy, the notion that competent persons ought to enjoy exclusive or disproportionate political power. I examine the role played by this idea in constitutional moments in the United States, Britain and India. I then draw upon these case studies to develop a normative critique of epistocracy.
