Currently, I am a (part-time) Senior Research Fellow at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, and an Honorary Fellow in the Program for History and Philosophy of Scienceat the University of Melbourne.

From 2007-2011 I was Lecturer in Social Science at the Centre for Biomedical Science in Society at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge.

I will be teaching a Science and Society module at the University of Melbourne in 2013 (Semester 1).


I hold a PhD from the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society (awarded in 2008) at the University of Exeter, as well as Masters degrees in History and Philosophy of Science and in Natural Sciences from Trinity College, Cambridge.
