 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I studied philosophy and psychology in Hamburg, Oxford, Marburg and SUNY Stony Brook and received a
MA degree in Philosophy and a “Diplom” in Psychology from Hamburg University and a doctorate in
Philosophy from Phillips-University Marburg. I also received extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy at AWKV Marburg, including clinical experience and supervision at outpatient psychotherapy
clinics as AWKV Marburg and Kassel and PAM at University of Marburg.

My primary research fields are bioethics (especially health care ethics), research ethics, moral
philosophy and its intersections with psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience. My doctoral dissertation
addressed the conceptualisation of ethical issues in psychotherapeutic practice, which raised more
general issues about ethics in professional relationships and the question of the nature of ethical
reasoning in practice contexts. I have an ongoing interest in the significance of empirical research for
moral philosophy. My primary research activities more recently are in the area of research ethics. From
2006-2008 I was leader on a national review of Irish Research Ethics Committees with special focus on
children’s research for the Office of the Minister for Children (partly conducted in collaboration with the
