Teaching

I’ve been teaching my own philosophy courses since 2009. In that time, I’ve taught over 30 classes on a broad range of topics. At UAB, my regulars are Bioethics (PHL 116), Ethics: Theories of Good and Evil (PHL 315), and Neuroethics (PHL 402). I also occasionally teach seminars, which usually cover current debates in those fields.

I work hard to make my courses interesting and enjoyable, but also challenging and fair. My teaching evaluations indicate that students appreciate my approach (for a sense, see RateMyProfessors.com). In 2017, I was honored to receive the “Outstanding Professor Award” from the students in UAB’s Early Medical School Acceptance Program.
