Marco Picture

I am a researcher in the Trusting Banks programme at the University of Cambridge and the University of Groningen. I have defended my philosophy PhD at Cambridge on the Right to Credit. I am currently completing my PhD dissertation in economics at the University of Groningen, where I develop a new approach to measuring financial literacy based on virtue epistemology.

I work primarily on financial ethics, which I see as a branch of applied philosophy that deals with normative questions in finance. I also work on the ethics of war. More generally, I have research interests in political philosophy, ethics, and medieval philosophy.


I have recently edited a book, together with Joachim Helfer and Klaus Wettig. It brings together short and accessible essays by political philosophers and writers advocating concrete policy proposals in the run up to the German election.
