Lisa Fuller is an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at the State University of New York at Albany. She received her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Sheffield. Her particular areas of research interest are global justice, applied ethics (especially international issues in bioethics) and feminism.  She has worked closely with Médecins Sans Frontières-(Doctors Without Borders) Holland’s public health unit on the ethical and policy implications of humanitarian aid.  Much of her work has focused on questions of priority-setting for international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) as well as the ethical obligations of their beneficiaries and donors more generally.  Her other work investigates the relationships between gender oppression and global economic inequality, and the notion of feasibility as it relates to the reduction of global poverty. She has published in journals including the Journal of Moral Philosophy, Developing World Bioethics, and Ethical Theory and Moral Practice.
