Claudia is a Bioethicist at the University Health Network (UHN) and an Assistant Professor at the Joint Centre for Bioethics, University of Toronto. Before joining UHN, she completed two postdoctoral fellowships in ethics, the first at the Pragmatic Health Ethics Research Unit, and the second at the Centre for Clinical Ethics – Unity Health Toronto. Claudia’s advanced training in ethics is uniquely paired with her graduate training in psychology. She earned a PhD in Applied Social Psychology from the University of Guelph, where her research examined contemporary understandings of women’s bodies. Her research to-date reflects her academic training and attends to issues at the intersection of psychology and bioethics. Her work has examined topics such as cultural constructions of health and beauty, lived experiences of illness, children’s participation in biomedical research, and voluntary decision-making within the context of drug addiction. Her current research focuses on racial justice in healthcare and healthcare ethics more broadly.
