I'm a 4th year D.O./Ph.D. student at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Department of Philosophy. My primary research interests lie within the fields of Philosophy of Medicine, Bioethics, and Philosophy of Mind.
I have interests in bioethics, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and ethics in general. Specifically I am interested in the mind-brain problem, the relation of a person to his body, and how well the findings of neuroscientific research explain the brain and mind.
My medical training at MSUCOM is in the field of Osteopathic Medicine, a branch of Medicine started 130 years ago by A.T. Still, leading up to a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree. Osteopathic Medicine involves more diagnosis, treatment and training in the neuromusculoskeletal systems, emphasizes an interconnectedness of body systems and "whole-person" approach to medicine, and incorporates a manual form of diagnosis and treatment known as osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT).
