Wayne is the Principal Investigator on EAP research projects and leads in the delivery of EAP Workforce Training. Educated at Cambridge University (BA, MA) and the University of California at Berkeley (PhD), Wayne is a philosopher by training. His principal philosophical interests include issues of judgement and decision-making and the theory of agency; he has also written extensively about the history of philosophy and about the use of phenomenological methods in psychiatry, psychology and the philosophy of mind. Since 2009, much of his teaching and research has been at the interdisciplinary intersection of philosophy, human rights, and health care policy. He has worked closely with clinicians and service users to develop a better understanding of decision-making under conditions of serious mental illness, and has provided research support to government bodies and NGOs across the UK and around the world in ongoing efforts to bring mental health and mental capacity law into compliance with modern human rights standards.
