Iwao Hirose's Research Page

Welcome to Iwao Hirose's Research Page

I am associate professor at McGill. I came to Montreal in 2007 and, before McGill, I held research fellowship at University College, Oxford; Harvard University; and Melbourne University. I have been lucky to have visiting posts at lovely places: Universite Catholique de Louvain; University of Stockholm; University of Tokyo; St Anne's College, Oxford; New York University; Fondation Brocher; College d'Etudes Mondiales, Paris; Waseda University; Corpus Christi College, Oxford; and Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The area of my research is moral philosophy. More specifically, I work on axiology and its applications to public policy.

I published three monographs: Moral Aggregation (OUP, 2015); Egalitarianism (Routledge, 2015); and The Ethics of Health Care Rationing (co-authored with Greg Bognar, Routledge, 2014). I also edited two volumes: The Oxford Handbook of Value Theory (OUP, 2015) with Jonas Olson; and Weighing and Reasoning: Themes from the Philosophy of John Broome (OUP, 2015) with Andrew Reisner.

Currently, I am working on a book-length project on the ethics, metaphysics, and formal structure of population health measure (e.g. Global Burden of Disease Studies).
