Personal profile


I work in the field of practical bioethics. My program of research is characterised by identifying a practical problem, undertaking conceptual analysis of the underlying philosophical and ethical issues, and developing responses that advance knowledge and contribute to practice. This approach draws upon both my medical and philosophical training. My conceptual analysis and selection of issues is informed by my longstanding commitment to feminist bioethics. 

In 2019 I received the NHMRC Ethics Award and was named as the national research leader in the field of Bioethics by the Australian.

My current research projects include:

AI and medical ethics: I am co-investigator on a CIFAR funded project to found an international network on AI and medical ethics (https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/med/research/hscience/sssh/ethics/digitalandassistive/aiandhealthcare/infaime/)

AI and healthcare: I am co-chair of the Safety, Quality and Ethics work program of the Australian Alliance for Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (https://aihealthalliance.org/)

Ethics in surgery, including the ethics and regulation of innovative surgery working with the IDEAL Collaboration (http://www.ideal-collaboration.net/), and gender in surgery, with Dr Katrina Hutchison
