    Ilina has a doctorate in Human Development and Psychology from Harvard University, and spent four years as an affiliated lecturer in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cambridge before arriving at the LSE in 2004. In 2006 she was the inaugural recipient of a university award in biomedical ethics from the Wellcome Trust for a project entitled VOICES . Ilina’s work explores the psycho-social and ethical implications of advances in biomedicine and neuroscience for young people and families. Her research has several goals: To investigate the benefits and risks of biomedical and neuroscience technologies for children; to enable evidence-based policy-making in child health and education; and to bring social theory and ethical insights into better alignment with children’s social, emotional and behavioral capacities. Current projects focus on psychotropic drugs and behavioural disorder; cognitive enhancement in young people; and biomarkers for aberrant behavioural states and conditions.
