Personal profile


I am a political philosopher, with a primary focus on justice, equality and dignity. I have published extensively on the meaning and function of these ideals in relation to gender, multiculturalism and disability.

I have recently published a book in which I defend a dignitarian approach to justice for people with disability, focussed on the importance of upholding the equal social status of all people.

I am currently the Chief Investigator on an Australian Research Council project which will explore what dignity means for people in residential settings such as aged care, disability support accommodation and in medical facilities. Early results from this research have been presented to various medical and health care organisations, media outlets and international dementia organisations.
