Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a historian of science, technology and medicine at the University of Strathclyde. As co-lead on the internationally collaborative research project, Risky Hormones, I work with patient groups and other partners to historically investigate the contested use and regulation of medicines in pregnancy and the risk of birth defects. My first book reconstructs the remarkable transformation of pregnancy testing from an esoteric laboratory tool to a commonplace of everyday life. It is under contract with MIT Press, for publication in spring 2022. I have longstanding research interests in health activism and medical film, and I recently developed a new interest in the history of face masks as embattled health technologies. I co-convene the Disability Research Group.
