First, I wanted to introduce myself. I'm Heather! I currently work at Google on their global ethics and compliance team. I also recently graduated from UCLA with a degree in Philosophy -- focusing on ethics and technology.
Second, I'm currently working on a research paper on how direct-to-consumer genetic testing shapes/impacts individual identity (both one's identity qua individual and as a member of a larger community [that may or may not significantly differ from you in terms of genetic predispositions]). Right now I'm asking people who are interested to share their thoughts about the topic either through filling out questions I've put up on my blog
or by just emailing me directly.
Thanks and I hope to meet some of you sooner rather than later!
