My research is in bioethics, philosophy of medicine, and personal identity. In bioethics, my work has focused on emerging technologies, including ethical issues related to overdiagnosis, personalised medicine, neurotechnologies, and artificial organs and prostheses. In philosophy of medicine I have contributed to conceptual debates on definitions of health and disease, and epistemological investigation of personalised medicine. My work on identity has examined narrative approaches to understanding persons, and their application to understanding ethical dimensions of self-change. I am developing a research interest in ethical issues related to drug and alcohol policy, aiming to draw on resources from feminist public health ethics to contribute to understanding and reducing drug and alcohol-related harm.
