University Lecturer in Global Studies of Science, Technology and Medicine


Biography:

I am University Lecturer in Global Studies of Science, Technology and Medicine. My book, Mass Vaccination: Citizens' Bodies and State Power in Modern China (forthcoming in October 2019 with Cornell University Press), examines the history of mass immunization in twentieth-century China. My research interests lie broadly in historical intersections of clinical medicine, the life sciences and public health, in China and around the world. I received my PhD in History from Yale and have taught at Tufts University. At Cambridge, I am also an affiliated lecturer in East Asian Studies at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and an associate member of the World History Subject Group in the History Faculty, as well as a Research Fellow of the Needham Research Institute. I am a Fellow and Director of Studies in HPS at Lucy Cavendish College, as well as Director of Studies in HPS at St Catharine's College. Potential students may get in touch by emailing mab94 at cam dot ac dot uk.

I also organize a Manchu language study group, which meets regularly for text-reading sessions during term.

I am on sabbatical leave in Easter 2019.
