Thomas M. Powers
Associate Professor of Philosophy/Director University of Delaware
Joined OEC on 12/03/2015
I am the founding director of the Center for Science, Ethics, and Public Policy (CSEPP) at the University of Delaware. I am also Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. My research concerns ethics and emerging technologies, environmental ethics, and the responsible conduct of scientific research. Since coming to Delaware, I have been principal investigator or co-principal investigator on 10 federal and state grants. These grants include NSF-RAISE, an educational program in research ethics for science and engineering graduate students. I received a Ph.D. in philosophy (University of Texas at Austin) and a B.A. in philosophy (College of William and Mary), and was a DAAD-Fulbright dissertation-year fellow at the LMU in Munich. Prior to coming to Delaware I was a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Virginia.
