Dick Timmer (*1993) is an Assistant Professor (wissenschaftlicher Beschäftigter, fixed-term) at TU Dortmund. His research is in moral and political philosophy. He focusses on distributive justice, economic ethics, climate change, responsibility, activism, state neutrality, and moral status, among other things. He is also interested in meta-oriented questions about methods and arguments in normative philosophy.

He wrote his thesis, titled “Thresholds and Limits in Theories of Distributive Justice”, as a member of the ERC Fair Limits project and under the supervision of prof. dr. Ingrid Robeyns.
