He received his MA in Political Science from Central European University and his PhD in Political Theory from Central European University. His research focuses on political philosophy and applied ethics. During his doctoral studies, he was a visiting researcher at Aarhus University, Roskilde University and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His doctoral thesis, titled “The Devout and the Disabled: Religious and Cultural Accommodation as Human Variation” examines the case of religious and cultural accommodation from an original point of view. The thesis argues that certain religious and cultural accommodations can be explained and justified by a particular disability accommodation model, the Human Variation Model.
