I have been a Lecturer in Philosophy and Health at UCL since 2008, and have been Director of the Centre for Philosophy, Justice and Health since January 2013. In 2011-12, I spent nine months on secondment to the Royal Society, working on the Science as an Open Enterprise report. This report identifies the principles, opportunities and problems of sharing scientific information, and makes a number of recommendations to scientists and their institutions, policymakers and others about how to create a socially responsible open data regime.
Before UCL, I was Lecturer in Ethics for four years (2004-8) at the Centre for Professional Ethics, Keele University, and held temporary lectureships in Philosophy at Birkbeck (2003-4) and University of Roehampton (2002-3). I received my PhD (an examination of Kantian accounts of morality) from UCL in 2002.
I am joint coordinator of the International Association of Bioethics’s Philosophy and Bioethics Network (INPAB). INPAB’s main aim is to promote high quality philosophical reflection in bioethics. INPAB also runs a blog (which I rarely contribute to any more), and a mailing list. I am the Philosopher in Residence of the Hackney Podcast.
