My main research areas are in gender studies and bioethics, especially reproductive ethics.  My publication record includes three edited books, over 60 publications in peer-reviewed journals of various disciplines, and over a dozen book chapters. I work on both normative and empirical bioethics projects, many of which are multidisciplinary collaborations.
