My doctoral research concerns 'best interests' decisions in nephrology, with a focus on dialysis. Through an empirical bioethics project, I am questioning if and when it is in the best interests of a patient with end-stage kidney disease who lacks decision-making capacity to forego dialysis in favour of conservative management.
I also work on the ethics of reproductive health, looking particularly at the (potential) role of telemedicine in the delivery of abortion care. My book on this - 'Early Medical Abortion, Equality of Access, and the Telemedical Imperative' - is currently in press with Oxford University Press and is due to be published in September 2021 (co-authored with Elizabeth Chloe Romanis of Durham University).
Other research interests include: prisoner health, HIV prevention, organ donation/transplantation, telemedicine, and genetic privacy.
