Dr Giulia Cavaliere is a Lecturer in Ethics at the Dickson Poon School of Law, where she teaches moral philosophy to undergraduate students and a range of applied ethics modules to postgraduate students. Prior to joining King’s, Giulia was a lecturer at Lancaster University.

Giuli received her PhD from King’s College London in 2019. Her doctoral research focused on novel reproductive technologies, and it was supported by a grant from the Wellcome Trust. Currently, Giulia’s research is on infertility, procreative justice and parental preferences, such as the preference to have genetically related children. She is particularly interested in whether people who cannot have children have justified claims of assistance towards the state.
