Postdoctoral Fellow


Angel Petropanagos is a postdoctoral fellow at Novel Tech Ethics. She completed her Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario, with specializations in feminist philosophy and bioethics. Her dissertation, Fertility Preservation Technologies for Women: A Feminist Ethical Analysis (2013), examines some of the ethical challenges that can arise in patients‚ decision-making about fertility preservation technologies, such as egg freezing and ovarian tissue cryopreservation. Angel is currently researching the ethics of fertility preservation in the pediatric cancer context. More generally, she is interested in the ways that social values, norms and power relations can shape human reproduction and family-building.
