Research Interests 

Social Epistemology, Bioethics, Applied Ethics

More 

I am interested primarily in social epistemology and bioethics, especially on subjects related to clinical ethics services, assisted reproductive technologies, genetic enhancement, gene therapy, and informed consent. Ongoing projects revolve around 1) concerns about the risk information disclosure practices of American fertility clinics with respect to human egg donors, 2) an evaluation of proposals for incentives in organ donation, and 3) social epistemology in the context of health care.

Fall 2014 teaching: Engineering Ethics.
