Main areas of interest
I have a long-standing interest in the socio-ethical dimensions of reproductive technologies, with a particular focus on gamete donation.
I have conducted research on embryo donation, gamete donor anonymity, ethical decision-making in the infertility clinic and research with the Donor Sibling Registry. I also interested in how this area is regulated and how safety, ethics and personal choice are balanced.
