I am Professor of Philosophy and Public Policy at UNC Charlotte, where I have been since Fall, 2008. I work in moral and political philosophy generally, with particular emphases on problems at the intersection of law and technology, and on the history of political thought. I am the author of The Biopolitics of Intellectual Property (Cambridge UP, 2020) and Hobbes and the Making of Modern Political Thought (Continuum, 2009), as well as numerous articles on intellectual property, privacy, political theory, contemporary European philosophy, and related topics.
I am a regular contribution to the Mecklenburg Medicine, the newsletter of the Mecklenburg County Medical Society. View the magazine here; my contributions (.pdf) are here:
