Associate Professor

I am on research leave until December 2018, but in Exeter most of the time. If you seek a personal meeting, don't hesitate to contact me via email to arrange one.  

Areas of Expertise:

Philosophy of Bimedicine, Ethics, Feminist Philosophy, Critical Theory, Empirical Philosophy, Public Understanding of Science, STS, Bioethics.

I am a philosopher, with training also as a sociologist. My research covers a range of topics in Applied Ethics, Cirtical Theory and the Philosophy of BIomedicine. Present foci are on the politics of life science governance, as well as the intersection of humanitarian, feminist and postcolonial ethics and theory. More generally, I am interested in the interrelationships between knowledge, power, institutions, individuals, values and logics of justification. My research is often in close cooperation with sociologistsm when I lead empirical investigations of the practices and reasoning applied in biomedicine and ethics.
