Dr Jillian Craigie
Senior Lecturer in Medical Ethics
Jillian Craigie's work is at the interface of philosophy, psychology and law, bringing together interests in moral psychology, human decision-making and policy questions concerning personal rights and responsibilities.
The themes of this work include the role of emotion and reason in moral deliberation; the relationship between accounts of rationality and mental incapacity tests and the relevance of mental capacities for recognition as a legal agent.
Jillian's applied research has examined law concerning undue influence, and the impact of alcohol dependence and anorexia on the capacity to consent to treatment. These interests evolved from a background in neuroscience (BSc Hons, Australian National University and University of Melbourne) and philosophy (PhD, Monash University).
She has held funding from both Wellcome and the Nuffield Foundation, and was previously a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, University College London.
