Personal profile


Katrina Hutchison is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy. Her research focuses on topics in feminist philosophy, bioethics and moral psychology. A significant strand in her research is the investigation of gender bias, including the underrepresentation of women in surgical careers and academic philosophy. She is co-editor of the book Women in Philosophy: What Needs to Change? (Oxford University Press, 2013) which has informed current efforts to improve the climate of philosophy for women. Another major strand in her research is topics in surgical ethics, including the ethics of innovative surgical procedures and implantable medical devices. She was involved in the development of the Macquarie Surgical Innovation Identification Tool (MSIIT) which has been used to inform policy on safely introducing surgical innovations. Her surgical ethics research has been published in leading bioethics and surgical journals, including Annals of Surgery, Bioethics and Journal of Medical Ethics.  Her current ARC DECRA project reflects her interests in both surgical ethics and feminist philosophy. It focuses on the impact of epistemic injustice and cumulative micro-inequities on women's surgical careers. Dr Hutchison often makes use of qualitative empirical methods alongside traditional methods of analytic philosophy, with the aim of delivering philosophical work that reflects lived experience and can inform policy and practice.
