Chad received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the Australian National University. He specializes in ethics, political philosophy and decision theory. His research explores the extent to which non-consequentialist moral theories can give us adequate guidance in cases involving uncertainty. His doctoral dissertation argues that absolutist moral theories — those that prohibit particular kinds of actions under all circumstances — can be satisfactorily extended to risky cases using a variety of overlooked resources in decision theory. His upcoming research focuses on fairness and bias in algorithmic decision-making, the use and misuse of statistical evidence in legal reasoning, and modeling the emergence and persistence of social inequality. Chad's interdisciplinary ethics fellowship is in partnership with Apple University.
