I am a Research Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at The UNC School of Medicine. I am developing programming to integrate Philosophy into the educational training and research profile of the department. I am also a member of the UNC Hospital Ethics Committee and serve on the Clinical Ethics Service.

I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy from The University of Virginia and have completed NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowships and training at UNC and Duke.

My areas of specialization are Medical Ethics, Philosophy of Medicine, Moral Psychology, Philosophy of Law, and Political Philosophy, especially where those areas intersect with conceptual and ethical issues in Psychiatry.
