About Cheryl

1506042_1530624360598661_36292833729071472_nI am  a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I am writing my dissertation on the philosophy of animal rights.

Previously, I studied at Colorado State University (CSU), where I obtained my MA in philosophy. At CSU, I focused primarily on issues within applied ethics, specifically environmental ethics, military ethics, and animal ethics. I wrote my Master’s thesis on the ethics of performing biomedical research on sentient beings, which was advised by renowned animal rights scholar, Dr. Bernard Rollin.

My research interests are first and foremost Animal Ethics, including how Animal Ethics intersects with Animal Theology, Animal Minds, and Animal Consciousness. I also pursue research in military ethics, bioethics, and environmental ethics. For a list of my peer-reviewed publications, click here.
