I’m originally from Swansea, Wales. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Southampton. After this, I took an MSc in Political Theory at the London School of Economics. I then worked in Mumbai for a women’s rights charity, focusing on sex-selective abortions (namely, we were against them, while being in favour of permitting non-sex-selective abortions – difficult campaign message). I completed my PhD in Political Philosophy at the University of Manchester, and then got a job at the University of Oxford, where I was a Research Fellow in Philosophy, and a Junior Research Fellow at Kellogg College. 

Between December 2015 and September 2017, I worked at the ominously titled Institute of Experimental Medicine at the University of Kiel in Germany, but then returned full time to Oxford after accepting a Departmental Lecturership in the Department of Politics and International Relations.
