Bio/Research

Much of my research focuses on the social and ethical aspects of science and technology, with a particular emphasis on health & illness. In this context, I have conducted research on genetic testing, biobanks, salmon genomics, human microbiome science, and childhood vaccination. I use mainly qualitative methods, as well as conducting conceptual and theoretical research. I also work with deliberative public engagements as a mechanism to involve members of the public in developing policy recommendations about science & technology. I am interested in questions of ethics, human agency, and epistemology and ontology in science and psychology.
