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.
My PhD project focuses on digital democratic innovations and their potential for increased citizens’ participation, deliberation and influence on political decision-making. In particular, I am interested in investigating the downfalls and gaps in current designs of digital participation systems to identify opportunities for their improvement, thus making democratic innovations more inclusive, deliberative, and empowering.
