I was born in 1980 in Athens, Greece. I read economics at Cambridge, where I also did some graduate work. I subsequently migrated to political philosophy, eventually completing a doctorate at Oxford.

My interest in philosophy is largely due to G. A. Cohen‘s Karl Marx’s Theory of History: A Defence, which I discovered while an undergraduate. Since I was largely interested in the theory of distribution, I abandoned economics and went down from Cambridge to Oxford to study with Cohen. I defended a thesis on intergenerational ethics in June 2009.

Since October 2013 I have been assistant professor in political philosophy at Leiden University. Before that, I worked at the Chaire Hoover, UC Louvain, and taught at the Institute of Philosophy at KU Leuven, and Université St-Louis. In 2012/13 I was lecturer in philosophy at Cambridge, and Director of Studies at Jesus College and Trinity Hall. In 2015/16 I was a Laurance S. Rockefeller visiting fellow at Princeton‘s Center for Human Values. Since 2017 I have also been an associate editor of the Review of Social Economy.
