I am a Bioethicist and Philosopher of Medicine, working as a Senior Lecturer in Health Ethics and Professionalism in the School of Medicine at Deakin University. Prior to this appointment, I was a Research Officer at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University for five months, held a three-year Lectureship in Bioethics at the Australian National University, and was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Novel Tech Ethics at Dalhousie University from 2012-2013.
I was awarded my PhD from Cambridge University in 2012. My thesis focused on issues of control, responsibility and the self in depression and used qualitative interviews with women to explore this topic. I have adapted this research into a book, published with Cambridge University Press in 2018. My research primarily focuses on ethical and philosophical issues related to reproduction and mental illness.
