About Me

About Me

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Pennsylvania, where I research the history of consumer medical technologies. My goal is to better understand the experiences and responsibilities of patients as they negotiate their own medical practices. My dissertation research centers around the roles of gender and patient labor in the history of the medical thermometer.

 

Other projects examine the ways that science, technology, and medicine are leveraged in popular media and culture. I think a lot about the apocalypse.
