My research focuses on lung disease epidemics in twentieth century China, with a particular interest in visual communications of public health messages. My project, which is funded by the Gates Cambridge Trust, explores notions of body, modernity, and nationhood in China across the 1949 divide through visual and print cultures of lung disease public health campaigns. 

I was previously at the Centre for the History of Medicine at the University of Warwick, where I worked on public health and neuroscience under social democracy in the mid twentieth century with the support of a Wellcome Trust Medical Humanities MA award. I also taught on the undergraduate module ‘Social Theory of Law’ at the Warwick Sociology Department in 2016. 

At Cambridge, I have supervised undergraduates on ‘Science in the Making of Modern Medicine’ and ‘Science and Medicine since World War I’.
