Dr Hanna Pickard

BA, BPhil, MA, DPhil
Quondam Fellow since 2017
I am a Reader in Philosophy at the University of Birmingham and for many years I have also worked in a NHS Therapeutic Community for patients with personality disorder. My research is inter-disciplinary: I tend to explore philosophical questions that arise out of clinical practice and related science, often in connection with criminal and mental health law and policy. I work on a wide range of topics, including issues involving responsibility and blame in clinical and criminal contexts, and the nature of addiction.
