I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Neuroscience, Ethics & Society (NEUROSEC) team at the Department of Psychiatry, and with the Wellcome Centre for Ethics & Humanities at the Big Data Institute. I am working on the BeGOOD project, developing novel tools for bioethics research and engagement with young people in the context of early intervention in mental health.
Additionally, I have an interest in the ethical landscapes of exercise prescription, sports, and wellbeing.
My background being in the field of analytic philosophy, I have a MA in Philosophy from Umeå University, Sweden. My Magistrate (1 year MA) thesis explored the landscape of moral enhancement as a means for criminal rehabilitation (2013), and my Masters (2 year MA) thesis discussed ethical issues in decision-making processes leading up to deep brain stimulation (DBS) in paediatric populations (2014).
In my PhD thesis, "The Ethics of Mind Maintenance" I analyse ethical trade-offs in the context of emerging technologies aimed at preventing and treating age-related neural decline and disease. The project seeks to facilitate the understanding of the value trade-offs involved in utilising technologies for neurodegenerative diseases, the aim being to provide a guiding and ethically sound structure for patients and other users of the technologies.
