Casey is a PhD candidate in Philosophy at the CUNY Graduate Center and Bioethics Fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. His primary research focuses on clarifying the moral significance of hypocrisy, as well as its function in interpersonal address. This includes topics such as: What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for hypocrisy?; Is being hypocritical a distinct moral wrong?; and, What is the nature of the ‘standing’ to blame that hypocrites are commonly said to lack? He also writes on topics in medical ethics (esp. therapeutic optimism) and ancient Greek and Roman philosophy (esp. Stoic metaphysics).
