My current position is as a Research Fellow in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology, working out of the Institute of Society and Culture at Western Sydney University. My primary areas of research are philosophy of the life sciences (biology, ecology, medicine) and ethics (bioethics, environment, technology). Recently, I have been writing on the role of biotechnology in conservation science and on invasive species.
