My interest is at the intersection of philosophy of medicine and ethics including work on quality of life measurement as an outcome, the entanglement of ethics and evidence in issues such as place of birth and elective reductions, and the evaluation of clinical ethics services. Currently, I hold a Marie Curie ASSISTID fellowship held at University College Cork from 2017-2019 to investigate how we can improve the evidence base for assistive technologies for autistic children. My strategy is to investigate the role that values play in the construction of evidence such as clinical guidelines and health technology assessments.
