Research interests

My main areas of research are the history of science and medicine, women’s and gender history, and the history of childhood. My research currently focuses on the history of breastfeeding in Britain from the 1860s to the 1970s. I am also working on a smaller project which considers the history of the concept of 'hospitalism' - the understanding that institutional care had adverse effects on infants - before 1945.


Modern European history, gender history, the history of the body and sexuality, the history of childhood.
