Talk title: In Search of an Effective Justification for Restrictions on the Use of Performance Enhancing Drugs in Sport: Pluralism to the Rescue

The main research focus in my career so far has been metaphysics, and in particular, the philosophy of time. My PhD and the majority of my publications are in this area.

I have written a book about the relationship between language and reality, called Metaphysics and the Representational Fallacy (New York: Routledge, 2008).

I have always been interested in ethics, particularly applied ethics, and I plan to write more about it in the future.

While studying for my PhD I taught on a Masters in Health Care Ethics, and I currently teach some business ethics in a paper in the Masters of Entrepreneurship, and the Philosophy Department's 100-level paper Ethical Issues, in which I tackle a wide range of practical ethical issues.
