She specialises in feminist legal theory, health law, genetics and the law, disability and law and culture. Her current scholarship is in the area of law that can broadly be described as regulating bodies. This includes laws governing reproductive technologies, biotechnology as well as the legal responses to developments in genetic technologies and the challenges these pose to legal understandings of normality, disability, individuality, and family. She is currently involved in several major research projects in the areas of reproductive technology, disability and emergent genetic technologies.
