I work on a postdoctoral project about positional or oligarchic goods, i.e. goods that are too scarce to be available to all, and for which supply does not increase at the pace of general economic growth, for example pristine nature, urban housing, and attractive jobs, and problems that arise regarding the distribution of these.

I also do research on distributive justice in general, the philosophy of work and labour justice, and on methods in normative theory.

Before joining the Department of Philosophy at the Univeresity of Bergen I worked at the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University, and I have held a visiting position at the Hoover Chair of economic and social ethics at UCLouvain.
