Chad Lee-Stronach

Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellow
Philosophy, Australian National University

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.
