Marie practised law and worked as a clerk before becoming an academic. Originally from Quebec city, she moved to the UK and joined Keele University in 2007. She is a native French speaker, and conversational in Hebrew. Matching Organs with Donors: Legality and Kinship in Transplants is her first book, published in 2012 by Penn Press.

In 2012-3 she will be an Arts and Humanities Research Council Early Career Fellow, working on a project entitled: Judging the Medics’ Science: Misconduct and research culture in disciplinary proceedings since 1990.

Marie is generally interested in how law, experts and society interact in generating controversies and consensus on issues pertaining to modern medicine. Her research and teaching interests include: legal ethnography; kinship, bureaucracies, gift and exchange; medical law; law science and society; research ethics and governance, publication ethics, and scientific conduct and misconduct.

She is happy to supervise work in these areas.
