Director of Communication

Scotty Ijaz is a senior studying Philosophy. In his view, the humanities don't always move as fast as scientific progress, and can be reluctant to accept biological explanations for cultural phenomenon. On the other hand, some scientists fail to realize that science too has its limits, and can not adequately answer every question posed by the humanities. The bioethicist, one who has experience on both sides of the looking glass, can comprehend the way the two compliment each other.
