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. 

Currently I have projects in: defining disease and overdiagnosis; bioethics and activism; the ethics of surgical practice, innovation and research; and vulnerability.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
