About

I am an assistant professor in philosophy in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, at the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi.

Research

Research areas: Moral, political, and legal philosophy; legal history.

My current research falls broadly in three areas, each of which is a window into some aspect of the liberal tradition: the concepts of coercion, deception, and consent and their role in legal and moral argument; the continuity of law and legal institutions across changes of political regime; and the nature of civil liberties, particularly freedom of speech.

I am also interested in several questions having to do with criminal justice, and in exploring connections between moral philosophy and the philosophy of science.
