William Tadros is a PhD candidate in Philosophy with research interests in political philosophy and normative jurisprudence. His dissertation examines the source of coercion’s normative significance—i.e., its impermissibility and effects on responsibility—as well as U.S. legal doctrines that rely upon the concept. Eventually, he plans to develop this work into a study of coercion by institutional actors. At Harvard, William has served as a teaching fellow for introductory courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics. He has a BA in Economics and Mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an MA in Economics from Stanford University, an MA in Philosophy from Tufts University, and a JD from Harvard Law School. In 2017–18, William served as a law clerk for the Honorable Danny J. Boggs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
