I'm interested in the history of bacteriology in China, visual cultures of medicine, and state public health campaigns. My research focuses particularly on the history of tuberculosis in the context of ways of seeing disease in early twentieth century China.
I was previously at the Centre for the History of Medicine at the University of Warwick, working on public health and neuroscience under social democracy in the mid twentieth century with the support of a Wellcome trust medical humanities MA award.
At Cambridge, I have supervised undergraduates on 'Science in the Making of Modern Medicine' and 'Science and Medicine since World War I'. On the side of my academic commitments, I also spend a lot of time campaigning and advocating for the freedom to publish in China and Hong Kong.
