“We pass through this world but once. Few tragedies can be more extensive than the stunting of life, few injustices deeper than the denial of an opportunity to strive or even to hope, by a limit imposed from without, but falsely identified as lying within” (S.J. Gould, 1981)
I am a bioethicist with an interdisciplinary background in medical biotechnologies, ethics and philosophy. I am a Senior Lecturer (the UK equivalent to Associate Professor) in Bioethics & Society in the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine at King’s College London, where I direct the MSc in Bioethics & Society.
I was previously (2010-13) at the Centre for Humanities & Health, also at King’s College London, and at the Department of Anthropology, History and Social Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (2011-12).
