About me

I am currently a Senior Investigator in the Department of Bioethics at the Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health.  Prior to coming to the NIH, I was professor of psychiatry and co-director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine, University of Michigan.  I am an adjunct professor of psychiatry at the University of Michigan and an adjunct professor of neurology at the University of Rochester.

I am a psychiatrist and a philosopher.  Clinically, I have worked as a consultation psychiatrist in general hospitals and as an outpatient general psychiatrist.  My philosophical background is in Kant’s moral philosophy (PhD, University of Chicago, where I worked with Christine Korsgaard). But most of my work has been in bioethics.  As I hope will be clear from this website, I use a variety of methods--normative analysis, in depth qualitative interviews, large database analysis, experimental surveys, democratic deliberation, decision analysis, and others--in my work. 

You can find my CV below.

PLEASE NOTE:  Although I do work at the NIH, all of the materials on this website represent my own views and do not represent the views or policies of the NIH, DHHS, or the U.S. government.
