I'm a political theorist working on the history of modern democracy and its shifting relation to liberalism. I'm interested in what overlooked historical trajectories can tell us about current discussions in political philosophy.

 

My research interests include past and present debates about popular sovereignty, public opinion, as well as the role of tradition-building in the history of political science.

I'm completing my first book manuscript, The People's Two Powers: Public Opinion and Popular Sovereignty from Rousseau to Liberal Democracy. I have also started doing research for a second book project, Propaganda and Democracy: A History.

In September 2022, I joined King's College London as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow. Previously, I taught at Brown and Yale, and earned a PhD in politics at the University of Cambridge. My work has appeared, amongst others, in The Journal of Politics, Modern Intellectual History, and Political Studies.
