I joined PaIS in 2012. I have previously held positions at the Universities of Southampton, Reading, Hull, St Andrews and Oxford. I have published a number of books the most recent of which is entitled Living Together as Equals: The Demands of Citizenship, which focuses on the duties of citizenship. My research interests lie in contemporary political theory, in particular: normative theories of citizenship; equality of opportunity and its place within a theory of justice; appearance and discrimination; multiculturalism as a normative approach to cultural and religious diversity; civic education, integration, and faith schooling; the significance of deep disagreement over moral and political issues for theories of justice and legitimacy; the distinction between ideal and non-ideal theory and the relationship between them. I would be happy to supervise research students in any of these or related areas.

From 2015-20I8 I was involved in a research project with Matthew Clayton and Adam Swift on Faith Schools: Policies and Principles, funded by the Spencer Foundation.

Since September 2019 I have been working on a new three year research project on Appearance, Discrimination, and Disadvantage, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

Since 2021, I have been involved in the GOODINT research project, which is based at the Arctic University of Norway and is lead by Annamari Vitikainen and Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen. It examines how equality of opportunity, cultural diversity, and social cohesion impact upon integration in Britain, Hungary and Norway.
