My primary research interests are applied ethics, bioethics, medical and health law, health policy, moral psychology, experimental philosophy and philosophy of science. In the past, I also explored issues in phenomenology, aesthetics and the history of philosophy. 


As well as producing a monograph and book chapters with Routledge and Springer, I have published in high-ranking journals, including AJOB Empirical Bioethics, Australasian Journal of Philosophy, Journal of Applied Philosophy, The American Journal of Bioethics and The Journal of Medicine and Philosophy.


I engage with empirically-grounded, practically-normative questions at the intersections of ethics, law and policy, including questions concerning clinical decision making, the legal and ethical dimensions of health technology developments, mental health and capacity law, the empowerment of vulnerable patients and feminist approaches to legal theory, philosophy and moral psychology. In addition, I seek to understand the ways in which dialogues between ethics, medical and health law, moral psychology and empirical research can inform the ways in which we deal with health policy issues concerning patient capacity, autonomy and authority, physician obligations, health governance, vulnerable adults, human rights, children’s rights and the rights of the cognitively-impaired. I also explore the nature of experimental methods in the medical, behavioural and social sciences at the intersections of moral psychology, experimental philosophy and philosophy of science.
