Medical Ethics (in particular Prioritisation and Equity)
Political Philosophy (in particular Distributive Justice)
These are the focus of my PhD Thesis.
Philosophy of Religion (in particular the Argument from Evil)
Ethical Theory (in particular Utilitarianism)
These were covered extensively in my Masters Thesis.
Research Ethics (In particular the structure and operation of Ethics Committees)
Through practical experience, I sit on three ethics committees presently, and have been heavily involved in the establishment of the research ethics system here at the University of Ulster. I have also published several papers on aspects of research ethics, and am presently working on several more.
