I am a philosophy professor and bioethicist at Arizona State University, and occasional visiting researcher at The University of Cologne (Germany). I've also spent time as a visiting scholar at Saint Louis University; The University of Connecticut, and Children's Mercy Hospital. At this site, you can learn about my research, upcoming book, teaching, upcoming talks, and below par social skills.

Along with my colleague, Ben Phillips, I am currently coordinating our department's colloquia series. So if you have interest in giving a talk at ASU, please get in touch (mpriest2@asu.edu).

Other ASU Roles: (1) Managing Editor for ASU's Applied Ethics Website; (2) Faculty member, “Ethics/Practices/Social Imaginaries” working group. This is part of ASU's New Global Future Initiatives; (3) Department of Philosophy -Graduate Admissions Committee; (4) Department of Philosophy - Diversity Committee.

The cute pups below are Christmas the liver-speckled beagle (BAWF), and Spooky the Bulldog/Bassett mix (PBR). The winter cover pics are from my backyard in beautiful Flagstaff, AZ, and the beach pics are from my other home town in Orange County, CA.
