I enjoy writing about the topics on which I teach and research for the general public. Further, I am the Managing Editor for Destination HealthEU, the blog for Emory’s Center for the Study of Human Health. I am available to contribute op-eds and perspective pieces about autism and other disabilities, the justice system, bio- and neuroethics, or contemporary issues related to equity and diversity. For an overview of some of this work, please see my Scholars Strategy Network profile here. Below are some of my public pieces as well as items about me in the media.
