Personal information

My research focuses on issues at the intersection of bioethics, ethics, and political philosophy. Much of my recent work has focused on how individuals, medical practitioners, and government actors should respond to collective action problems related to health, in some sense of ‘related to health.’ This has led me to think especially about public health ethics generally, as well as political and ethical issues related to dietary patterns and infectious disease.

One of my longer-term projects involves developing a theory of political legitimacy that’s better-suited to assess the legitimacy of particular actions rather than, say, assessing the legitimacy of particular institutions or states as a whole.
