Portrait of Jasmine Gunkel

Jasmine Gunkel is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Bioethics. She received her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Southern California. Her dissertation developed a philosophical account of intimacy, crafted in hopes of better identifying and protecting intimate rights, and began to demonstrate how the account could be used to regulate a wide variety of intimate labor. While at the NIH, she’ll be thinking primarily about intimacy in the medical context. She also has bioethical interests in animal ethics and reproductive ethics. After her time at the NIH, she’ll be joining the Department of Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario.
