Mark Wells received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Bowling Green State University in 2014. Before coming to Northeastern, he held visiting positions at The College of Wooster and Mt. Holyoke College. In his philosophical work, he focuses on the ways in which ethical theorizing can inform good personal, organizational, and public policy. His published work includes articles on the meaning of life, political protections for animals like corvids, hospital billing, markets, plasma donation, procreative risk, racial dating preferences, and the teaching of East Asian and Buddhist philosophy. His current work focuses on the idea of moral equality as it applies to humans and non-humans.
