My interests are in the histories of medicine, gender, and development in the twentieth century British Empire in sub-Saharan Africa. Supervised by Sandra den Otter and Robert Shenton, my dissertation research focuses on the volunteer efforts of British women to promote colonial health and welfare at the end of empire in Kenya.
