I specialize in Plato, Stoicism and Neoplatonism. My work is centrally concerned on the one hand with the question how ancient thinkers choose to communicate their insights in specific literary forms and on the other hand the reception of (mainly Platonic) philosophical texts in the ancient world and since antiquity. Areas of special interest include the Platonic Alcibiades I, philosophical concepts of self-knowledge, the work of Olympiodorus of Alexandria, and narrative analysis of ancient philosophical texts.
Students are welcome to contact me for supervision on any subject in ancient philosophy and Greek and Latin philosophical prose.

I am an Assistant Professor in Political Theory at Campus Fryslân, an interdisciplinary faculty at the University of Groningen. Previously, I was a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge and Director of Studies in Philosophy at Newnham College, Cambridge; a Junior Research Fellow at St Hilda’s College, Oxford, where I founded the St Hilda’s Feminist Salon; a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Justitia Amplificata, Goethe University Frankfurt; and a Teaching Associate in Ethics and World Politics at the University of Cambridge. I did my PhD and MA in Political Theory at UCL (University College London). My undergraduate degree was in Politics and International Relations at the University of Manchester.
While pursuing his career in a business environment, he felt the need to reflect more deeply on the pragmatic reality of the organizations he worked for. Thus, Mees sought to deepen his academic knowledge with a master’s in Philosophy in Business at Utrecht University, followed by a PhD at the Ethics Institute of Utrecht University. Both alongside his full-time job at ING.
Mees is an expert on motivational obstacles to taking sustainable action and pathways for individuals, institutions and humanity. As a professor of Practice of Business Ethics, he works in close collaboration with professor of Financial Ethics, Boudewijn de Bruin. Together with the other professors at the EE&F department that focus on topics such as sustainable development, sustainable banking & finance and corporate governance, Mees contributes to setting up, innovating and carrying out education in the field of business ethics. Apart from his educational contributions, he takes part in research projects within the faculty and develops his own research in the field of business ethics.

Prior to joining the University of Groningen, I contributed to two projects as a postdoctoral researcher, one on public life and religious diversity (University of Oxford, 2016-2019) and another on the ethics of voting (Horizon 2020 Grant, Sciences Po Paris, 2019-2020). I completed my PhD at Sciences Po Paris (2016) and was a Fox Fellow at Yale University (2013-2014) and an Alliance visiting scholar at Columbia University (2015).

My main research interest is positive bias, the phenomenon that many people see the world more brightly and more positive than it really is. Positive bias may protect us from developing mental health problems. Where do individual differences in optimism come from? As part of my Veni project The bright side of life: understanding the origins of optimism, I investigate to what extent and how parents transmit their optimism to offspring.
I am passionate about improving scientific practice. I am a member of my department’s Ethics Committee and of the Open Science Community Groningen, where I give pre-registration workshops. Examples of open science practices in my work are pre-registrations, sharing syntax and data, and publishing open access.
