Biography

Paolo is a Research Associate at the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy in the Department of Law, School of Social Sciences, The University of Manchester. He works on the Civic Data Identity Partnership research project.

Paolo holds a PhD in Bioethics and Medical Jurisprudence from the University of Manchester, an Erasmus Mundus MSc in Bioethics from KU Leuven, RU Nijmegen, and University of Padua, and an MA in Philosophy and Bioethics from UCSC Milan. Alongside his work at Manchester, in the past years he has worked on several empirical ethics projects at the University of Oxford with the Ethox Centre, Nuffield Department of Population Health, and with the Neuroscience, Ethics and Society Team (NEUROSEC) at the Department of Psychiatry. He has conducted qualitative research with mental health service users, carers, health professionals, researchers, and members of the public.

Paolo’s research interests lie at the intersection of bioethics, mental health ethics and law, and medical sociology. He investigates the ethical, legal, and societal challenges that arise from the translation of medical technologies into psychiatry, from the design and delivery of mental health services, as well as moral dilemmas arising in psychiatry and mental health care.
