Trevor Hedberg researches and teaches about issues in moral philosophy, particularly those in the areas of environmental ethics, bioethics, procreative ethics, and the intersections of these subfields. His most substantial work is The Environmental Impact of Overpopulation: The Ethics of Procreation (Routledge, 2020). His other published work in moral philosophy includes articles and book chapters on the moral status of animals, climate change, the ethics of lab-grown meat, and the ethics of marketing to vulnerable populations. He received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Tennessee in 2017 and held postdoctoral appointments at the University of South Florida and The Ohio State University prior to joining the University of Arizona in Fall 2022. As a faculty member of the Honors College, his teaching focuses on courses in ethics, especially those that contribute to the FER (Future Earth Resilience) and HHV (Health and Human Values) minors.
