Nicola Williams joined the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at the University of Lancaster in September 2014. Her research background is in the fields of Philosophy and Politics and her main academic interests lie in questions of reproductive ethics, personal identity and intergenerational justice. She graduated from The University of Reading in 2008 with a BA in Politics and Philosophy, The University of York in 2010 with an MA in Practical Ethics, and The University of Manchester in 2015 with a PhD in Bioethics and Medical Jurisprudence.

She is currently working on the Wellcome Funded Project: The Donation and Transfer of Reproductive materials and her most recent research has thus focused on ethical questions surrounding human reproductive tissue donation and, more specifically, on the ethics of uterine transplantation. Her other recent research focuses on questions of pre-natal harm, social and distributive justice, and reproduction.
