Dr. Snyder's research interests focus on our moral obligations toward vulnerable populations. He is currently engaged in writing projects concerning ethical obligations in the areas of health worker migration, price gouging in the provision of medical services, exploitation in pharmaceutical testing, and markets in human organs. Dr. Snyder's doctoral dissertation developed an account of one form of exploitation that explains moral concerns about benefiting from vulnerable populations such as low-wage workers. In the future, he intends to develop this project into a book that describes different forms of exploitation faced particularly by the global poor.
Dr. Snyder has teaching interests in public health ethics, particularly at the intersection between public health, global poverty, and resource inequality. In the past he has taught on a range of topics in applied ethics, focusing on ethical obligations stemming from poverty, increased economic integration, and power asymmetries.
