Hi! I'm Jeffrey Pannekoek.

I'm a PhD student and instructor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I specialize in applied ethics, in particular clinical bioethics, and am currently working on my dissertation on the role of dignity in representative medical decision-making. I also do research in the areas of practical reason, free will and agency, and moral responsibility. My more outré interests include philosophy of popular culture and the philosophy of tattoos. I'm passionate about teaching and course design. My last name is Dutch for Pancake.
