Johan Trovik's research interests include the history of modern political thought, social philosophy, and critical theory, and contemporary political theories of capitalism. In his doctoral dissertation, he explores the concept and practice of work in the history of western capitalism in order to raise and address certain normative questions related to the future of work. Straddling the subfields above, he tries to think about ways of "de-bundling" the goods and values currently associated with work, in order thus to articulate a future "end of work".

Before coming to Princeton, Johan completed a B.A. in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford.
