About Me

I am a historian of medicine, specializing in global health technologies. My work brings together the histories of technology, medicine, public health, and capitalism to explore transnational American foreign aid and its impacts in southern Africa.

My work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Ford Presidential Foundation, and the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, among others. I was a 2017 Michael E. DeBakey Fellow in the History of Medicine at the National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health, and am currently a Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Medical Humanities and Social Medicine at Johns Hopkins University.
