“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 tenured Lecturer (the UK equivalent to Assistant Professor) in Bioethics & Society in the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine (formerly, Social Science, Health & Medicine) at King’s College London, where I direct the Master’s 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).
This website collects information on my current research, publications, seminars and conferences of interest in the field of ethics of emerging (bio)technologies, ethics of enhancement in elite sports and ethics of translational research/first-in human clinical trials.
