I am associate professor of practical philosophy at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas (IFIKK), Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo. My research is focused mainly on two areas. On the one hand, I lead a three-year project funded by the Polar Program of the Research Council of Norway, entitled Political Philosophy Looks to Antarctica, which seeks to analyze—among other things—the moral grounds of claims to land and natural resources in the last uninhabited continent. On the other hand, I am interested in the foundations of basic individual rights, specifically the right to subsistence. I also have an ongoing interest in environmental and animal ethics.
