My current area of research concerns the ethical issues presented by integrating machine learning and other kinds of artificial intelligence into clinical practice. What are our obligations with respect to the sharing of our personal health data, and how should we understand its value?  I am also interested in the philosophy of well-being, particularly how theories of well-being are applied in difficult cases, such as patients with disorders of consciousness. Are these patients capable of having lives worth living, and how ought we to make decisions on their behalf?
