About Me


I am a PhD student studying philosophy at Western University.  My research examines moral responsibility in sperm and ova donations.   I am also interested in political philosophy and am examining its potential applications to medical ethics.  I am currently involved in a CIHR funded research project examining conscientious refusals in healthcare.
