About me

I am a bioethicist with an interdisciplinary background in biotechnology, ethics and philosophy of medicine.

My expertise lies in the proactive assessment of the ethical and social aspects of emerging technologies through a contextual, bottom-up approach grounded in science.

Originally trained as a biotechnologist, I have worked at the intersection of biotechnologies, ethics and society in a variety of contexts  (higher education, ethics boards, consultancies) at the forefront of innovation in science and technologies for over fifteen years.

I am an appointed member of the Ethics Expert Advisory Group of the World Anti-Doping Agency, and a Trustee of the Institute of Medical Ethics.



  • Ethics of Emerging Biotechnologies.
  • Ethics of Drug Development and Clinical Trials
  • Assisted Reproductive Technologies, and Prenatal Genetic Screening.
  • Applications of AI to drug development and discovery.
  • Ethics and Law in Medicine and Sport.

I currently hold the position of Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Solidarity, Department of Political Science, University of Vienna.
