omm-nettWelcome! My name is Ole Martin Moen and I am a Norwegian philosopher at Oslo Metropolitan University.

Most of my research in practical ethics: I try to find better ways to think about thorny ethical problems and to present my findings in academic articles that are accessible to non-specialists. 

I am Principal Investigator of “What should not be bought and sold?”, a $1 million research project funded by the Research Council of Norway, and a member of the Young Academy of Norway.

Here is my CV. Besides my work as a philosopher, I am a queer parent and an aspiring novelist.
