Mackenzie Graham is a Research Fellow in Neuroethics, at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, and the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities. Mackenzie received a PhD in Philosophy from The University of Western Ontario, in London Canada, and was previously a Post-Doctoral Associate at the Brain and Mind Institute at Western. His research interests are in moral philosophy and neuroethics, particularly in the challenges of evaluating the well-being of individuals who are behaviourally non-responsive as a result of severe brain injury. His project investigates how can we assess well-being in patients whose means of communication are severely limited or non-existent, what actions can and should we take to promote their well-being, and questions pertaining to their moral status.
He has also written about clinical equipoise, disclosure of research results in functional neuroimaging research, and accidental awareness during general anaesthesia.
