"Thus the unfacts, did we possess them, are too imprecisely few to warrant our certitude..."



I'm a neuroethicist/bioethicist/philosopher at Michigan Technological University, where I teach ethics and bioethics, and hold down the neuroethics fort in the snowy wilderness of northern Michigan. I'm a member of the Neuroethics Division of the NIH BRAIN Initiative.


I work mainly on ethical concerns that arise in relation to recent neuroscientific discoveries about disorders of consciousness, and on ethical considerations in sport, particularly sport-related neurotrauma. Lately I've been thinking a lot about facts, unfacts, certainty, and uncertainty in medical ethics.
