Dr. Stephen Coleman is Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Leadership & Vincent Fairfax Foundation Fellow in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, UNSW Canberra, Program Director (Military Ethics) with the Australian Centre for the Study of Armed Conflict And Society, a Senior Research Fellow with the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at Charles Sturt Univerity, and an Associate Research Fellow with the Australian Defence Force Centre for Defence Leadership and Ethics. He has previously held appointments in ethics at ANU, Charles Sturt University and Monash University.

He is the author of two books (Military Ethics: An Introduction with Case Studies, published by Oxford University Press in 2012 and The Ethics of Artificial Uteruses: Implications for Reproduction and Abortion, published by Ashgate in 2004) and over twenty papers in academic journals and edited collections on a diverse range of topics in applied ethics, including military ethics, police ethics, medical ethics, and the practical applications of human rights. In addition to these published papers he has presented at conferences in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States as well as spending an academic year as the Resident Fellow at the Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership at the United States Naval Academy.

He has worked on research projects for both Foods Standards Australia and the Victorian Police, and as a special consultant on a recent project to provide the ADF with a framework to deal with issues in military health ethics. He has provided advice on Codes of Conduct to the Police Forces of New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia, and on policies to ensure the ethical conduct of research involving humans for the Defence Science and Technology Organisation.

At UNSW Canberra he teaches courses in military ethics and practical ethics at both undergraduate and post-graduate level and is also the convenor of the UNSW Canberra Human Research Ethics Advisory Panel.

He can also make balloon and origami animals, juggle, breathe fire and ride a unicycle, though not all at the same time.
