PhD Title: An Empirically Informed Ethical Analysis of Directed and Conditional Deceased Organ Donation

Supervisors: Prof Heather Draper, Mr Simon Bramhall, Dr Jonathan Ives


  • MA(Res) in Ethics and Political Theory, University of Reading, 2009
  • BA(Hons) in Philosophy, University of Sheffield, 2007


Greg completed his undergraduate degree in Philosophy, and worked at a university for a year before deciding to return to full-time education. He then undertook an MA at the University of Reading, which ended up focussing on a combination of applied ethics and feminism. His dissertation was entitled ‘What is wrong with pornography?’. Having decided at the last minute that an academic career was much more interesting than training to be a teacher, he embarked upon his PhD. The project combines a traditional philosophical approach with qualitative data.
