I've published peer-reviewed articles in some of the most prominent journals in the fields of bioethics, medical ethics, medical law, and moral psychology, 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, philosophy, medical law, moral psychology, cognitive science, and health policy.  

In the field of bioethics, I've published on the ethics of new and emerging biotechnologies, the ethics of biomedical research, the application of moral psychology, its theories, and concepts to clinical practice and health policy, and the rights of vulnerable individuals, children, and minority groups. I am also heavily involved in establishing experimental bioethics (“bioxphi”) as a specific field of research.  

In terms of medical law, I've published on experimental jurisprudence, the tensions between capacity law, mental health law, and human rights law, racial justice and drug laws, the regulation of biomedical research and new and emerging medicinal products and devices, international abortion legislation, physician assisted dying and euthanasia, and the roles of the Court of Protection and the High Court in cases involving vulnerable individuals and children.
