Assistant Professor


My research interests are interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on fields such as philosophy of science, bioethics, environmental ethics, philosophy of food, the ethics of emerging technologies, and science and technology policy. The two main foci of my research are the role of values and interests in science and the epistemic and ethical implications of the social organization of research. My current projects include characterizing different types of risk in biomedical research, evaluating the debate over genetically engineered foods, and examining the epistemic and ethical implications of current intellectual property and licensing policies in science, especially in biomedicine and agricultural biotechnology.
