I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Assistant Director of The Center for Genomic Advocacy, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Genetic Counseling program at Indiana State University.
My primary research interests lie in the areas of health care ethics and philosophy of biology. My recent work has focused on the ethical and social dimensions of genetic counseling and genomic medicine, pediatric and transplantation ethics, and conceptual and metaethical issues in the biological and medical sciences.
I completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame under the direction of Robert Audi and Grant Ramsey. For the 2015-16 academic year, I was the Pediatric Ethics and Genomics Fellow at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, working with the Center for Bioethics, Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine, and the Division of Clinical Genetics. Under the direction of John Lantos, my work at CMH focused on the ethics of clinical whole-genome sequencing of newborns, pediatric bioethics, and ethical and psychosocial issues associated with genetic counseling.
