Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Professionalism, University of Adelaide

I am a philosopher by background and training but now based in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide where I coordinate and deliver the Ethics and Professionalism teaching across the faculty. Previously I spent five years at Flinders University where I taught ethics into the MD. Before that I spent eight years in the UK at the University of Birmingham, Keele University and the University of Ulster respectively. Prior to that I was based in New Zealand at Massey University and the University of Auckland.

I largely work on political and normative philosophy mainly in the context of medical practice, research ethics and other professional practices. I'm particularly interested in the regulation of human behaviour, and how social, legal and economic structures shape ethical decision making.:I've worked on this primarily in three contexts, research ethics, public health ethics and resource allocation in health care.

I am Editor in Chief of the Springer Book series, Research Ethics Forum, Book Review Editor for Public Health Ethics.
