Research Interests: ethics, bioethics, Kant, social and political philosophy

Lindsey Chambers has research interests in normative ethics, bioethics, and social and political philosophy. She earned her PhD at UCLA in 2016, and she was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford’s Center for Ethics and the Center for Biomedical Ethics. Her research focuses on the ethics of shaping future persons through the use of reproductive selection. She argues that procreators can wrong their offspring just by failing to act well in their role as prospective parents. She uses the case of procreation to illuminate broader issues in normative ethics about how you can wrong someone without harming her, the relevance of motives to directed or personal wronging, and how the relations we stand in to other persons can generate special obligations to them.
