Lecturer, Research Assistant Professor

I work mostly on issues at the intersection of ethics and economics, including how we should respond to the under-consumption of vaccines and the over-consumption of antibiotics, and whether the market for biomedical enhancements should be regulated in any way. More generally, my research focuses on collective action problems. I recently co-edited the first major anthology in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (Oxford University Press, 2015).

I am a core faculty member in the Philosophy, Politics, & Economics program at Duke and UNC, and the faculty sponsor of the Duke PPE club.  The Duke/UNC PPE program co-convenes its classes, and jointly sponsors conferences and speaking events throughout the year.  We also co-sponsor the Hayek Lecture Series at Duke.
