Sarah M. Roe

RC-VEST Director

History Department

Sarah has a BSc in Biology with Honors, in addition to her Ph.D. in Philosophy. Both her interests and research focus on the intersection of science and ethics. She is currently working on topics such as medical resource allocation, the evolution of the female organism, notions of scientific progress, biological species concepts, and the use of Citizen Science. Sarah teaches classes at SCSU that also emphasize the intersection of science and ethics, such as Bioethics and Philosophy of Science. She has always believed that a balance between the humanities and the sciences is the most comprehensive route to knowledge, and both her pedagogy and research interests mirror that sentiment.
