Research Summary

I am currently working on two books. The first, near completion, is on Zika public health emergency; it takes the circulation of the virus within empire and patriarchy as a point of departure for rethinking the politics of reproductive health and reproduction. The second, just beginning, is a multi-sited study of ecofascist culture and politics. 

I have wide interests which are not limited to my published work, and would be happy to work with students whose research plans fall outside of what I have done or am doing. Some areas I am currently reading around include race and gender in the history of genetics; the futures of eugenic thought; nature and the Anthropocene; vaccines; Scandinavian colonialism; oil drilling in Mexico; and new nativisms and nationalisms. 

Teaching Summary

I convene the 'Race in Theory' and 'Topics in Race and Postcolonial Studies' core modules for the MA Race and Postcolonial Studies and the option 'The Politics of Health' at the Sarah Parker Remond Centre, as well as contributing to the wider programme. I also teach on the history of colonialism in the medical school.
