Bio

I am PhD Candidate in Political Philosophy at the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS). My project is supervised by Dr. Bart Engelen, Prof. Dr. Maureen Sie, and Prof. Dr. Serena Olsaretti. My primary research interests are in theories of distributive justice (especially desert-based and luck egalitarian ones) and philosophy of taxation. My secondary research interests are in theories of well-being and philosophy of death.

I have a BA in Liberal Arts and Sciences from University College Utrecht (2011, cum laude), an MA in Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics (2013) and an MSc in Philosophy and Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam (2015, cum laude). During my PhD, I spent a semester at Pompeu Fabra University (2016) and at Yale University (2018).

I am lead editor of the Erasmus Journal for Philosophy and Economics and one of the editors of Bij Nader Inzien
