I am a bioethicist, Assistant Professor, and CIHR Applied Public Health Chair in Ethics & Health Emergencies in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.

I also serve as an Associate Director of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy and have appointments in the Department of Philosophy, Schulich Interfaculty Program in Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Centre for Research on Health Equity and Social Inclusion, and Institute for Earth and Space Exploration.

My research is primarily in the area of public health ethics, with a focus on infectious disease ethics and the ethical demands that health equity and social justice place on governments and institutions to protect and promote the public’s health. Check out my publications.
