My current research is on intergenerational justice, and distributive justice more generally. Last year I published articles on the non-identity problem in The Journal of Political Philosophy, and another on climate change, discounting the future and intergenerational equity in Political Studies. Since then, I've completed a paper on the priority view which I presented at the 2012 conference of the British Society for Ethical Theory, and which will be published in a special issue of Ethical Theory and Moral Practice. I've also drafted papers on Parfit's mere addition paradox and a paper about the problem of aggregation, which seeks to reconcile utilitarianism and prioritarianism, on the one hand, with the sufficiency view, on the other. At present, I'm working on a pair of papers dealing with climate change and moral mathematics. Soon I plan to start work on a book about intergenerational justice and catastrophic risk.
