I am a historian of Africa whose research focuses on twentieth-century histories of health, science, and medicine.  My work lies at the intersection of scholarship on healing in Africa and the field of science and technology studies in the global south. My dissertation “Scientists, Healers, and Bioprospectors: the Politics of Therapeutic Knowledge in Ethiopia, 1930-1998” investigated local efforts to study, develop and regulate traditional medicine in Ethiopia.
