Trevor Hedberg is the College of Pharmacy/CEHV Postdoctoral Scholar in Applied Ethics. He currently teaches bioethics courses in the College of Pharmacy while pursuing his own research and supporting program activities under the auspices of the Center for Ethics and Human Values.

Trevor recently completed a book titled The Environmental Impact of Overpopulation: The Ethics of Procreation, which was published with Routledge in May 2020. The book presents the ethical case for slowing global population growth, surveys the policies that could achieve this goal in morally acceptable ways, and explores the moral implications of population growth's connection to environmental harm for individual procreative decision-making. With this book now published, Trevor is resuming his work on the moral repercussions of biodiversity loss and investigating a cluster of ethical issues related to human enhancement.
