Dr. Patrick Lin, director of the Ethics + Emerging Sciences Group at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, has accepted an appointment as Fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies for 2010.

He is also the lead author on a pair of government-funded reports: Autonomous Military Robotics: Risk, Ethics, and Design (Office of Naval Research, 2008) and Ethics of Human Enhancement: 25 Questions & Answers (NSF, 2009).

Dr. Lin serves on the editorial and advisory boards for a number of academic and industry journals, including Nanotechnology Law & Business, Studies in Ethics, Law, and Technology, and NanoEthics. He is currently working on ethics and policy projects related to advanced military technologies, geoengineering, space technologies, virtual reality, synthetic biology, and more.
