Senior Lecturer in Bioethics, University of Sydney
Areas of Interest: Social & political philosophy; Feminist philosophy; Normative Ethics; Applied ethics

I am a Senior Lecturer at Sydney Health Ethics, University of Sydney, Australia, where I teach introduction to moral philosophy and bioethical methodologies. My research focusses on issues of human flourishing, at the intersection of feminist theory, ethics, and political philosophy. I am particularly interested in questions related to power, health & well-being, identity & group relations, and personal & group agency. I am currently developing an account of public heath virtue ethics, and am part of a team exploring theories of reproductive autonomy in the context of genetic carrier screening.
