Welcome and thank you for visiting. I am an Associate Professor & Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Utica College, a small private liberal arts institution located in Upstate New York, where I am also the Director of the Applied Ethics Institute. Prior to coming to Utica College, I held positions at Concordia University in Montreal, and Queen’s University at Kingston, where I completed my PhD.
For 2016 I was a visiting researcher at the Brocher Foundation in Switzerland.
This website offers a relatively comprehensive listing of my research publications and projects. For further details, please contact me for a full CV.
My work largely consists of discussions of distributive justice with a particular emphasis on egalitarianism & disability. I also engage in contemporary applied ethics debates surrounding the experience of disability.
I am the author of two short books that focus on disability and justice: “Disability & Justice: The Capabilities Approach in Practice” (2014) and “Human Rights, Disability, & Capabilities” (2016), and am the editor of another book: “From Disability Theory to Practice: Essays in Honor of Jerome E. Bickenbach” (2018). At the moment, I am working on a monograph titled “Disability & Death” that explores the moral permissibly of selective abortion and assisted dying.
