Katy Fulferis an assistant professor of philosophy and women’s studies at the University of Waterloo. Her research interests are primarily in the field of feminist bioethics. Some of her previous publications, which have appeared in journals such as Hypatia, Developing World Bioethics, and IJFAB: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics, examine the ethics of transnational surrogacy. Her current research examines surrogacy in the Canadian context. She is specifically interested in questions of commodification, exploitation, agency, and moral deliberation in assisted reproduction. In addition, Fulfer’s research examines these concepts in the context of animal ethics and in the context of the philosophy of Hannah Arendt.
