Arianna Manzini



I am a Wellcome Trust-funded DPhil student at the Oxford Department of Psychiatry, where I work within the Citizens: Early Intervention Ethics project, which aims to investigate young people’s moral attitudes to, and judgments about a range of early intervention strategies to manage moral and behavioural development. Working with young people, the project will progress through several phases: scoping and defining questions; methods development and testing, qualitative research, and e-research tools innovation.

My supervisors are Professor Ilina Singh (Department of Psychiatry) and Professor Nina Hallowell (Ethox Centre). My research within Citizens: EIE focuses on children and adolescents’ understanding of autism and moral attitudes towards using genetic information to prevent and cure autism. My study has been informed by the work of the Young People’s Advisory Group which is being set up as part of Citizens: EIE. I am a member of the IME Postgraduate Student Bioethics Committee.  

Citizens: EIE is part of the BeGOOD Early Intervention Ethics project, which investigates the ethical, social, and scientific dimensions of the early intervention paradigm where it intersects with psychiatry, mental health, and child development. BeGOOD is funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award to Professor Ilina Singh.

I hold an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele (Milan, 2014), an MA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics of Health from University College London (2015), and an Erasmus Mundus MSc in Bioethics from KU Leuven (2016).
