I study the history of European and American medicine prior to 1920. My interests broadly encompass the development of disease categories, the intersections of health and sexuality, and the lifecycles of healthcare institutions. My current research examines the history of the child patient and the development of children’s hospitals in the 19th and early 20th centuries in Europe and the US.
