Research Interests

My immediate research focuses on the acceptability of child protection interventions, as part of the Acceptability project at the Centre for Research on Discretion and Paternalism, which examines public values and interpretations of the child’s best interests principle within different societies, as well as legal justifications of best interest judgments.

I have recently concluded a research project on Posthumous Medical Data Donation, which involved developing an Ethical Code for Data Donation, to address the challenges and opportunities provided by the (non-)sharing of medical data. My research also addressed the question of a potential moral obligation to share such data and to participate in medical research in general.
