I am a physician sociologist interested in medical ethics, palliative care, burnout and moral distress, and fostering humanism and empathy in medicine. I am interested in how institutional cultures influence how physicians communicate decisions at the end of life. I am particularly interested in how these hospital cultures might influence how physicians conceptualize the ethical principles of autonomy and best interest and how that influences the way they frame and convey available options. As a part of this, I am interested in moral conflicts that might occur and the interaction between these ethical conflicts on physician moral distress, burnout, alienation, and declines in empathy. Moving forward from this I hope to explore how alternative models beyond western bioethics such as a return to relational autonomy and an ethics of care approach might help foster a more compassionate and humanistic culture of medicine.
