Jillian holds a Research Fellowship in Biomedical Ethics funded by the Wellcome Trust. She has a background in philosophy (PhD, Monash) and neuroscience (BSc (Hons), Melbourne). Her fellowship project “Agency, mental capacity and criminal responsibility in mental disorder” is a comparative analysis of justifications for the features of mental disorder taken into account in determinations of capacity and culpability in English law.
Her other recent work has examined the implications of moral cognition research for philosophical moral psychology; the relevance of neuroscience for the assessment of mental capacity; and the relationship between theories of rationality and the criteria for mental capacity.
