Born in Zhombe, Zimbabwe, my research interests lie primarily at the intersection of bioethics, philosophy of medicine, and political philosophy. Broadly speaking, I am interested in exploring the ways in which different conceptions of health have a bearing on the various moral obligations that arise in healthcare. My dissertation defends the view that relational egalitarian approaches to justice best capture a liberal democratic state's moral obligations towards its citizens when it comes to healthcare.

In addition, I have interests in issues related to justice and the carceral system as well as issues that arise within the context of Africana philosophy.
