I’m a historian who specialises in researching gender, reproduction, the family, and everyday lived experiences with a particular focus on issues of equity. I’m interested in the interface between people’s lived experiences and law and policy, as well as broad shifts in legislation and policy.

Teaching

I am the deputy module organiser for the Health and History DL module and contribute lectures to Decolonizing Global Health in History series. I am also a tutor to MSc Public Health students.

Research

I am currently working on a history of the New Zealand health system from 1938 until 2000 which focuses on trans-national connections and influences, particularly the close relationship between the New Zealand health system and the NHS. I am also developing a project that explores the history of primary care provision in Britain from the inception of the NHS to the present day with a particular focus on health centres.
