Assistant Professor in Biomedical Ethics, National University of Singapore

I am a philosopher by training, specializing in applied ethics. I have published on a variety of topics in that area, including research ethics, big data, vaccine allocation, food ethics, human enhancement, and in vitro fertilization. Other interests include clinical ethics, social and political philosophy, politics, and journalism ethics.

The views and opinions I express are my own and do not represent the views and opinions of the National University of Singapore or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates.
