Section: Philosophy

I am a philosopher working on the awesome "Enhancing Responsibility" project. The project explores the impact that cognitive enhancement technologies have on issues of moral and legal responsibility. I also write about the epistemic condition of moral responsibility and neuroethics. I teach in various areas of applied ethics and ethical theory.
