Academic interest

My academic interest is primarily in the ethics of war. More generally, I am interested in the relevance of causation to morality, subjective/objective rightness and collective responsibility.

I received my MIA from Columbia University in 2005.  Between 2006 and 2012 I have worked in the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, serving as a diplomat both in Islamabad and Jerusalem. 

I was awarded the Ph.D. fellowship at Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas 2012 and received my doctoral degree from the University of Oslo March 2016.
