Dr Mary Walker

My research interests include bioethics, personal identity, and health policy. In my current role I research ethical issues related to advanced medical devices. Previously, I have worked on overdiagnosis, the epistemology of surgery, regulation of therapeutic goods, responsible research and innovation, and drug policy. My doctorate examined psychological continuity and narrative theories of personal identity.
