Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Research Associate on the EPIDOME project, which is working to develop trustworthy light-based robotic devices for autonomous wound healing. My work is on the empirical bioethics and public engagement workpackages, exploring the ethical and regulatory issues arising in the development of the technology as well as public perceptions and acceptability.


Alongisde my work on the EPIDOME project, I am continuing my PhD part time. 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' - was recently published by Oxford University Press (co-authored with Elizabeth Chloe Romanis of Durham University).


Other research interests include: prisoner health, HIV prevention, organ donation/transplantation, telemedicine, and genetic privacy.
