I have published peer-reviewed articles in some of the most prominent journals in the fields of bioethics, medical ethics, medical law and medical jurisprudence, including AJOB Empirical Bioethics, Bioethics, Journal of Applied Philosophy, Journal of Medical Ethics, Medical Law Review, The American Journal of Bioethics and Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics

My primary research interests are in bioethics, medical law, jurisprudence, moral psychology, experimental philosophy and feminist philosophy.  

I have demonstrable research expertise in feminist approaches to bioethics, experimental philosophical approaches to bioethics and medical law, the ethics and law of new and emerging biotechnologies and the interactions between moral psychology and clinical ethics. I have also published widely in the fields of medical law, medical jurisprudence and public health policy, particularly on the tensions between capacity law, mental health law and human rights law, the relationships between autonomy, capacity, consent and legal decision making, the High Court’s inherent jurisdiction and the common law treatment of vulnerable individuals and children, racial justice and drug laws, COVID-19 clinical and public health policy and environmental sustainability and health policy.
