Current Research

My research is centred on a powerful moral intuition: it is morally important, all other things being equal, to treat people as they deserve to be treated. My aim is to vindicate this intuition, developing an account of both the nature of desert itself and its moral significance. I am particularly interested in questions regarding the basis of a subject's desert: if a subject deserves some object, in virtue of what do they deserve it?
