I am a post-doc at the Institute for Futures Studies in Stockholm. I received my PhD from Rutgers University in October 2015. My dissertation "Personal Identity and Bioethics" defends a psychological account of personal identity, according to which we human persons persist through time by virtue of the continuity of our capacity for consciousness. I show that this account supports more progressive policies regarding embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, whole-body transplantation, and several other actual and hypothetical medical practices. My work at the Institute for Futures Studies focuses on the implications of different views of personal identity for population ethics, as well as the value of future generations.
