My primary research interests are in bioethics, medical law, moral psychology, and health policy.  

In terms of bioethics, I have published on the ethics of new and emerging biotechnologies, the ethics of biomedical research, the interactions between moral psychology and clinical and public health ethics, the patient-doctor relationship relating to vulnerable individuals, children and individuals from minority groups, and experimental philosophical approaches to bioethics and medical law. 

With regards to medical law, I have published on the tensions between capacity law, mental health law and human rights law, international abortion legislation, the law of physician assisted dying and euthanasia, the Court of Protection and the High Court’s inherent jurisdiction, and the common law treatment of vulnerable individuals and children. 


Finally, in terms of health policy, I have delivered research on racial justice and drug laws, the impact of COVID-19 laws and regulations on public health, and public health effects of climate change.
