My work is primarily within political philosophy. Recently i have been working on distributive justice in general and with inheritance taxation in particular.

My book Rettferdig fordeling og rettferdig skatt was published by Fagbokforlaget in 2019. The book is currently being translated and will be published in extended version by Routledge with the title Distributive Justice and Taxation.
