Jakob Moggia, M.Sc.

Jakob Moggia is a PhD student in political philosophy at the TUM School of Governance. His dissertation aims exploring the implications of global risks for justice, in particular with regard to their creating and deepening of social inequalities. His thesis is supervised by Lisa Herzog (HfP/TUM) and Darrel Moellendorf (University of Frankfurt). 

Due to his background in economics, he has subsidiary interests in the philosophy of the social sciences (viz. public policy in the face of scientific uncertainty and the role of values in economics) as well as ethics in finance. Jakob holds a B.A. in Culture and Economics from the University of Mannheim and an M.Sc. in Philosophy of the Social Sciences from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). His master thesis focused on the moral responsibility of financial institutions for the creation of systemic financial risks. Besides his academic studies, Jakob has gained further practical experience in finance, politics and crisis communications.

In 2019, Jakob was a visiting PhD student at the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government at the invitation of Prof. Jonathan Wolff.
