Earlier Work

This is the home of past writing–some reportage, scholarly articles, and various other examples of my nerdery. If you have a hard time sleeping, try reading one of these.

Here’s a 2006 law review article on behavioral genetics, neuroscience and law, published in Duke’s Law and Contemporary Problems. Find the PDF here. Watch the webcast of my talk at Duke Law School here.

Also, a paper on cognitive neuroscience and law that appeared in Current Opinion in Neurobiology in 2006.

A PDF summary report on neuroscience and law, published by Dana and AAAS. The book itself? Here.

Speaking of AAAS, here are some issues of Professional Ethics Report, where, from 2002-2005, I contributed pieces on governmental reactions to human cloning, the need for regulation of human cloning, Carl Elliott’s Better Than Well, Stephen Hall’s Merchants of Immortality, neuroscience and the law, Margaret Eaton’s Ethics and the Business of Bioscience, and a comment on the President’s Council of Bioethics white paper on stem cells.

In addition, in 2005, I was a contributor to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Science, Technology, and Society, published by Oxford University Press. At 728 pages, it makes a great doorstop.

Here’s a reportage piece I did in 2002 on bioethics and bioterrorism for the University of Miami’s Journal of Philosophy, Science and Law.

From 2000-2001, I served as the Ombudsman for the Cavalier Daily, an independent daily at the University of Virginia. Access my archived columns here.
