My academic interests include Bioethics, Feminist Philosophy, Environmental Philosophy, Ethical Theory and Applied Ethics. I am currently working on my dissertation, "An Ethical Analysis of Creating Beings for Human Use", in which I focus on four controversial case studies involving creating beings for human benefit (creating human embryos for stem cell research; creating inter-species stem cell chimeras for research; creating geneticaly modified animals for human organ harvesting; and creating children for such things as bone marrow transplants for sibblings with immune system diseases). In addition, I am currently working on an ethical analysis of the philosophical and policy issues that arise from the corporate practice of Bioprospecting, as well as writing on a Feminist approach to reclaiming tools of oppression as a means of empowerment. All of the issues on which I focus have the common thread of dealing with systems of oppression as expressed (and reinforced) in the field of Medicine, Medical Technology, and global capitalist endeavors.
