Excerpt from blog article:

"As an early career researcher, I am attracted to the transformative potential of research. Similar to pragmatists such as Richard Rorty and Patrick Baert, I am interested in moving beyond faithful description of phenomena to research as a tool to address inequality. My current study is looking into the attitudes of BAME groups towards genomics and data sharing. I am currently undertaking this study under the auspices of the Society and Ethics research group: Connecting Science at the Wellcome Genome Campus at Hinxton, Cambridge. It is based on the premise that the success of any health technology will depend largely on its acceptance by the public."
