Supriya Subramani, Dr.



Short Bio

My current works are on the philosophical and conceptual constructions of respect within bioethics literature. My research interests lie at the intersection of ethics, behaviour and law. In particular, I focus on the healthcare interactions, informed consent, and respect for persons. Furthermore, I am interested in qualitative inquiry into moral subjectivities of individuals and moral epistemological inquiries within empirical bioethics research.
