I have research interests in Science and Technology Studies especially as applied to issues of health and medicine. I have recently completed an historical study examining the cultural turn towards the sun and sunlight in early twentieth century Europe and this research provides an analysis of the roles that sunlight played in the mediation of such notions as health, pleasure, the body, gender and class. I also have conducted research into critical approaches to the public understanding of science as applied to health issues. Most recently I have been working on an ESRC funded study into how biosecurity interfaces with other concerns in our globalized world.
