Research Theme: Lies
is a political scientist and philosopher working on the tensions that arise
between individual freedom and collective self-determination. He is presently
writing a book on the concept of political manipulation and the ethics of its
practice within and between liberal democratic societies. The book addresses
topical questions about the (in)justice of electoral interference, campaign
finance, gerrymandering, and voter suppression. More broadly, Gregory is
interested in the interrelation of normative political theory/philosophy and
research in the social sciences, especially the ways in which empirical and
theoretical models shape our understanding of what's normatively desirable and
practically possible in politics.
Gregory completed his PhD at Washington University in 2016, and comes to UCL from Queen's University Canada, where he was a postdoctoral research fellow. His work has appeared in The Journal of Political Philosophy, Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy, and The Journal of Canadian Studies.
