Research Interests

Moral theory, in particular the combined use of casuistry and virtue ethics as a method of moral problem solving. His forthcoming book explores how this combo method can be used to help resolve long-enduring stalemates such as the one involving genetically modified foods and business management decisions involving product development and risk management.

Elsewhere he has considered the ethical aspects of China’s and India’s widespread adoption of automobiles and business-related topics such as whistle blowing outside of America, pre-employment testing, self-deception in management, Internet privacy, certain aspects of religious ethics.
