My name is Leigh. I’m currently finishing off a PhD focused on political philosophy in England in the 16th-18th centuries. I’m interested in the relationship between authority, law, ethics, choice and decision analysis, and access to medical goods (medication, technologies).
I also happen to be a type 1 diabetic (on an insulin pump) and I have ADHD. So I’ve had a lifelong interest in healthcare and in technologies that can help manage, treat or cure medical conditions.
As I wrap up my PhD, I’ve developed an intensive interest in electronics and robotics and so am trying to teach myself the basics. I hope to work in bioethics (development or implementation of law and policy and best practices) and/or to work in developing medical technologies for various conditions as my skills develop.
