Assistant Professor of History, University of Pittsburgh

My book, "The Politics of Disease Control: Sleeping Sickness in Eastern Africa, 1890–1920," is a history of African politics and colonial public health, focusing on sleeping sickness at Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika.

A second project examines the emergence of the “neglected tropical diseases” (NTDs) as an operative and imaginative category in global health, with specific reference to the experiences of African patients and communities, as well as transnational researchers, in the past 40 years.
