I have begun in research in the field of molecular biology. However, I found this field disapointing, in part because it is hardly possible to seriously address or even simply reflect on the numerous social implication that are found in science. I have oriented my career towards bioethics where I learnt other methods, i.e. qualitative methods and philosophical inquiry. Since then I have been working in various research projects in bioethics, population genomics, and primary care. I also have taught bioethics to biologists. I am member of a research ethics committee evaluating social science researches at University of Montreal.

I am looking for opportunities to investigate and teach bioethics and to develop tools for teaching on ethical issues relevant to biological sciences and biomedical sciences.
