My main areas of interest are moral theory and questions about the foundations and boundaries of ethics: How is morality related to human nature? What are our responsibilities to nonhumans? Are masculine and feminine approaches to morality different? What is the relationship between justice and care? I teach classes on Human Nature, Feminism, Animals and Ethics, and Moral Theory, as well as Introductory Philosophy, Modern Philosophy and Symbolic Logic. I have written a book, Care, Autonomy, and Justice: Feminism and the Ethic of Care, and I am currently doing research on the ethics of human/animal relations and the ethics of organ donations. I serve as the advisor to the student Philosophical Society at SU and the co-advisor to the ECI prison discussion group.
