Welcome!

I’m a Professor of Law at the Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics at the University of Ottawa, Canada. I am cross-appointed to the Faculty of Medicine and hold the Bertram Loeb Research Chair.

My research focuses on the law, ethics and policy of advancing biomedical technologies. Together with a multidisciplinary group of collaborators, I approach questions at the intersection of neuroscience, neurotechnology, law and ethics, as well as  issues posed by organ donation, transplantation and replacement.
