I am a researcher with long standing research interests in knowledge, ethics, citizenship, ageing, medical sociology, and citical theory. I began my research career in social policy, and have gained a great deal of experience through work in health policy, management research, human geography, the sociology of ageing, and in the sociology of medicine.

My current work is on how patients make decisions about genetic and prenatal tests, when the outcome of the test will be of more use to the patient than for clinical management of the condition. This involves research in genetics, pre-natal care focusing on the use of knowledge and on ethics in patient decision making.

My continuing interest in knowledge, ethics and decision making takes me in various new directions. The context changes, but the issues remain, hence my continuing interest in critical theory as a forum for exploring the meaning and implications of empirical insights.

Much of my work involves the use of novel research methods to explore research issues. Hence in recent years, I have been using a combination of clinical ethnographies and of personal diaries as a way of documenting experience.
