My main areas of interest are the ethics of immigration, citizenship, and the family, broadly conceived. Sometimes I bring these areas of interest together, as when I discuss the ethics of family migration schemes, and the value of citizenship for children.
My first book, Liberal Self-Determination in a World of Migration, was published in 2022 by Oxford University Press. You can read a review from Prof. David Miller here. My second book, Parenting and the Goods of Childhood, was published in 2023. It provides a new theory of what justice requires from parents, both adoptive and biological.
I was born and grew up in Brazil, studied in Australia (Masters at the University of Melbourne and PhD at the Australian National University), and held academic positions in Oxford, Princeton, and Amsterdam.
My partner, Ryan Cox, is also a philosopher. We live in Sydney and we have three kids.
