Research Interests: Early modern medicine and maritime culture, commerce, vernacular science and medicine, and the creation of expertise and cultural authority.

I am interested in studying the intersection of early modern medicine and maritime culture. To that end, my research interests include medical exchanges and commerce, vernacular science and medicine, and the creation of expertise and cultural authority. Specifically, it is my aim to explore the ways in which the medical and scientific innovation and cross-cultural translation can be fostered in environments such as in an ocean-going vessel and in ports of call.
