I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioethics at UNC-CH. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Philosophy
My research focuses on conceptual, epistemological, metaphysical, ethical, legal, and political issues surrounding the concepts of mental disorder and irrationality. I have published on the topics of moral integrity, human enhancement, economic rationality, political liberty and material equality, surrogate decision-making, psychopathy (i.e., the condition of being a psychopath) and civil commitment law. My profile at Academia.edu contains links to many of those papers.
