Projects per year
My work draws on a variety of methods—both empirical (qualitative and quantitative) and theoretical. It is also interdisciplinary and synthesises insights from ethics, law, sociology, policy, economics, epidemiology and other disciplines and involves engagement with all stakeholders to elicit the full range of perspectives and ensure legitimacy.

I am passionate about finding innovative ways to translate research into tools that help clinicians, researchers and policymakers to think about ethical issues. Of particular note, I have developed an online decision tool that helps people understand how to identify conflicts of interest (COIs), appraise them and generate justifiable management plans.
