Dr ROBISON, Shea Kelly
BS Boise State University, MA University of Arizona, DA Idaho State University
Postdoctoral Fellow
Shea’s primary research focus is the intersection of politics, biology and morality, with an emphasis on the political and ethical implications of the emerging science of epigenetics. Shea is completing one of the first books to be published on epigenetics and public policy, titled Epigenetics and Public Policy: The Tangled Web of Science and Politics, to be published in 2017 by Praeger. At CityU, Shea is working on the Oneness project in the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy, focusing on the connections between the concept of Oneness in East Asian philosophical tenets with the science of epigenetics and the political and ethical philosophy of Benedict Spinoza.
