Since I began working at CSU in the fall of 2007, I have really enjoyed getting to know the students and the Cleveland area. My main areas of interest are bioethics and feminist philosophy. I specialize in reproductive issues. My dissertation work was actually on theories of personal autonomy so I also have some interest in social and political philosophy. More recently, I have been interested in virtue ethics and am currently working on some research projects related to that topic. I teach mainly in bioethics and a lot of lower-level philosophy courses that count for general education requirements. I enjoy teaching many of these "topics" oriented courses for two reasons. First, it allows me to introduce students to philosophy. Second, it allows me to show students how philosophy can be relevant to their every day lives.
