My teaching involves courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervision of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.
For the 2018-19 academic year, I taught two undergraduate courses: Phil 2720G: Professional Ethics and WS 2259F: Reproducing Race: Race, Reproduction, Parenting, and Families. And I led two graduate seminars: Phil 9114A: Trust and Testimony and WS 9571B: Feminist Bioethics.
Graduate and postdoctoral supervision is an important part of my teaching. I have supervised, or am currently supervising, projects that concern medically assisted or unassisted reproduction, adoption, gender, race, public health, trust or related concepts, autonomy or related concepts, moral responsibility, fiduciary relationship, and harmful speech.
