Research Statement

My research interests lie at the intersection of normative ethics, bioethics, and health law.  My primary current interests include disability and disability law, privacy especially with respect to health information, reproductive ethics, issues of justice in health care, and infectious disease and public health ethics.  I also write and teach on issues in environmental ethics and philosophy of law.
