I teach courses in ethics, particularly in medical ethics. In the classroom I explore theoretical issues and consistently bring these issues to bear on contemporary problems. My primary goals as a teacher are to instill communicative and analytical skills as well as to leave a lasting impression on the thought processes of students. I am also interested in how fiction can be used a method for training new philosophers and health professionals to approach complex moral issues with nuance and empathy.
