Petros Panayiotou is undertaking doctoral research in Medical Law and Ethics. His thesis entails the construction of a new philosophical scheme for determining the moral significance of the embryo and foetus, and a discussion of the way these philosophical deliberations might affect the legal regulation of abortion. This project is funded by the Onassis Foundation and is jointly supervised by professors Jonathan Herring and Charles Foster.

Petros has obtained an MRes in Law (Distinction) from the University of Glasgow and an LLB (First Class) from the University of Sheffield. His broader research interest concerns the law and ethics of medically assisted dying.

Petros is also a tutor in Roman law at Exeter College.
