Jen Krutzinna

Currently a researcher at the Centre for Research on Discretion and Paternalism at the University of Bergen, Norway. Previously postdoctoral researcher in the ethics of biomedical Big Data at the Oxford Internet Institute and part of the Digital Ethics lab. I have a PhD in Bioethics and Medical Jurisprudence from the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy at the University of Manchester.

My main research interests lie at the intersection of health, ethics, law and policy-making. I am particularly interested in the role of well-being as justification in ethico-legal decision-making processes, esp. in the context of vulnerable people.

In a previous life, I was a Coworking Space owner, Big Data consultant, business development manager, amongst other things.
