I am a historian of modern Britain. I write about the history of medicine and the environment, politics, and social history.

I trained both in the U.K. and the U.S., holding a Ph.D in Modern European History from New York University (NYU), an MA in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine from King’s College London, and a BA in History from the University of Oxford.

Committed to bringing my work to a public audience, I have featured in The Financial Times, Le Monde, The New York Times, The Guardian, and Salon. I have appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Start the Week’ alongside podcasts such as History Extra and The Majority Report. My research has been awarded fellowships and grants from institutions that include the New York Academy of Medicine, the American Philosophical Society, and the History & Political Economy Project. I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
