Brief Description of Work:

I am a DPhil Medical Law Researcher at Oxford. My thesis is focused on the case of Montgomery and how the law is dealing with the doctor-patient relationship and patient autonomy. I support a shared decision-making model of the relationship, which I title the supported autonomy model. I seek to interact more with values-based medicine, which I anticipate will become increasingly important for my research. Beyond my thesis, I am most interested in the legal issues surrounding abortion and end of life matters.
