Graduate Center of The City University of New York
I received my PhD in Philosophy from the Graduate Center of The City University of New York. One of the themes of my work is the examination of the interaction between commonsense views and scientific theories. I have published articles on personal identity as it relates to biomedical issues such as advance directives and the human microbiome. I have also published on a number of topics in neuroethics, including the compatibility of determinism and free will, the ethical permissibly of cognitive enhancement, and the implications of brain imaging technologies on mental privacy, and brain death. I am one of the editors of the book The Human Microbiome: Ethical, Legal and Social Concerns (Oxford University Press, 2013). I am also the author of a monograph titled Neuroethics and the Scientific Revision of Common Sense (Studies in Brain and Mind, Springer, forthcoming in 2016).
