Lara Buchak is an associate professor of philosophy at UC-Berkeley. Her primary research interests are in decision, game, and rational choice theory. Her book "Risk and Rationality" (Oxford 2013) concerns how an individual ought to take risk into account when making decisions. At Princeton, she will be working on applications of this work to central questions in ethics, including the question of how resources in a society should be distributed; the question of when one is allowed to take a risk that affects other people; and the question of how risk may have played a role in the evolution of moral norms.
