My doctoral project examines ideological debates about inheritance law and tax reform after the Atlantic Revolutions. Exploring normative arguments between the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, I consider how these can inform contemporary debates about distributive justice. More broadly, I am interested in the relationship between theories of property, inequality, and democracy within the history of political thought. My research is supervised by Professor Richard Bourke, and is generously supported by an AHRC - King’s College Match-funded Studentship. I previously finished the MA History of Political Thought at UCL with Distinction, and was awarded the Principal's Prize. My dissertation 'John Stuart Mill & The Politics of Inheritance', supervised by Dr Will Selinger, is now forthcoming in the journal History of Political Thought. I also hold a First Class BA (Hons) in Art & Philosophy from the University of Dundee.
