Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Howard University

I am a philosopher trained in social and political philosophy. I am interested in questions of political obligation to obey the state and how to solve problems of historic injustice. My most recent projects are specifically in the realm of biomedical ethics. I operate on the assumption that health care is a social good, and I am interested in how characteristics like race, gender, and class determine how that social good is distributed. Given the historical injustices that people have experienced on account of race, for example, what is the state obligated to do in order to right these historic wrongs?
