Bio

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioethics at UNC-CH. I am also a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Philosophy.

My research focuses on conceptual, 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.

I am currently the Managing Editor of Public Affairs Quarterly.
