Welcome!

 

I am Assistant Professor of Political Theory at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Before that, I was a Post-doctoral Research Associate in Values and Public Policy at Princeton University. I received my DPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford.

 

I think and write about political theory, ethics, and the philosophy of public policy. I am particularly interested in socio-political freedom, consequentialism, distributive justice, behavioural policies, public health, effective altruism and animal ethics. For more, see my research page.

I am also the director of the PPE Master's in Groningen and a board member of the PPE Centre in Groningen.

 

(“Andreas Schmidt” is a pretty common German name. Sadly, I am not an expert on German Idealism, nor a professional bass-baritone, actor or retired footballer.)
