Since 1999 I publish in scientific journals.

I try to uphold a general view on science and society. Of course, one cannot do everything. As a researcher I am the supervisor of the research group Philosophy of medicine and ethics (PME) at Ghent University.


I supervised numerous projects on diverse topics in my area of expertise: autonomy in healthcare, ethics in genetics, medicalisation and the digitalization of healthcare.


Besides this, I am an active member of several European Networks in philosophy of medicine:
