Researcher in Law
Miranda is a Researcher in Law within HeLEX. Her work mostly involves the legal aspects of research governance, and thus how the law aids or obstructs policy-making and innovation.
She joined HeLEX in 2017, providing legal support to the Administrative Data Research Network with a particular focus on powers to share information and data protection. Since then, she has worked with the DIabetes REsearCh on patient straTification (‘DIRECT’) consortium, investigating the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation for the project.
Her current work centres on the Governing Biomodification project; mapping the laws and standards which regulate ‘biomodifying’ technologies such as gene editing, induced pluripotent stem cells and bioprinting. This Leverhulme Trust funded project aims to provide an evidence base for appropriate, flexible and responsive governance within the biotechnology sector.
After qualifying as a barrister in 2014, she practised within a healthcare specialist team, providing advice and representation to the NHS on a range of patient-related issues. Much of her work as a barrister was in a mental health context, involving patients with fluctuating mental capacity. Miranda originally studied English at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and was an intern at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in Mauritius.
