I am an experienced Senior Lecturer with over 12 years experience in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research and supervision. I am interested in the regulation of healthcare law, ethics and practice. In my former research roles as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute of Science Ethics and Innovation (headed by Nobel Laureate Sir John Sulston and Professor John Harris) and as a Research Associate at the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy (headed by Professors Margaret Brazier and Soren Holm, University of Manchester), I extensively researched this field. My research successes include many peer reviewed papers which have been published in leading international journals and one edited book published with Cambridge University Press. I have been invited to present my research at many domestic and international conferences. I am often asked to review papers for leading journals in medical law and bioethics such as the American Journal of Bioethics, Clinical Ethics, Bioethics, the Medical Law Review and Legal Studies.
Prior to my present role, I was a Lecturer at the University of Manchester in Family Law & Relationships and within that topic, have a keen interest in domestic violence.
I currently supervise a number of PhD students and am happy to supervise doctoral research within my expertise.
I am happy to speak or work with other practitioners and /or members of the public on matters within my expertise.
