Kings College London
United States Minor Outlying Islands


"Dr Jill Craigie studied neuroscience and philosophy at the Australian National University and University of Melbourne before undertaking a PhD in philosophy at Monash University (awarded in 2008). Her dissertation examined the relationship between empirical studies of moral decision-making in the psychological and brain sciences, and theories of moral judgement in meta-ethics, its central theme concerning the roles of emotion and reason in moral deliberation. Jill joined King’s for the first time in 2008 on a Research Fellowship in Philosophy and Psychiatry, where she began working in the area of mental health ethics and law. In 2011 she was awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Fellowship in Biomedical Ethics for the project “Agency, mental capacity and criminal responsibility in mental disorder” which took her to the Department of Philosophy at University College London. There Jill conducted research and facilitated engagement across philosophy, psychiatry and law on questions of legal capacity, before joining King’s College London in 2014 as a lecturer in medical ethics."
