Stephanie Beardman specializes in ethics and moral psychology. She is interested in diachronic rationality, the nature of practical reasons, and in the relevance of scientific studies to ethics.  She received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University and has been an Assistant Professor at Barnard College, Columbia University, and a postdoctoral fellow in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology program at Washington University in St. Louis. Last year she received a grant from The Experience Project: The Philosophy of Transformative Experience. Her current research project at the University Center, "Rational Choice and Dementia: Decision-making for Those Who May Lose Themselves," explores core decision-theoretic, metaphysical, and ethical aspects of dementia.
