Nieuw boek: Experiences of Adults Following an Autism Diagnosis

About me

As a bioethicist I investigate ethical questions surrounding new reproductive technologies, genetics and biology. Specifically, I am interested in neurodiversity (autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette Syndrome), and how biological explanations of diagnoses influence how we perceive responsibility. I am the PI and grant holder of the ERC funded project NeuroEpigenEthics. You can consult my online CV. I am also a member of the 'Jonge Academie' (young academy)
