Research Interests

I research the social and medical history of early modern Europe with a focus on German cities in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I am also interested in the history of public health and the impact of epidemic disease in the modern world.

Teaching Experience

My teaching interests range across the early modern period, including the encounters of American, European and African peoples in the Atlantic world after 1400 and the conflict caused by Europe's religious reform movements in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I also teach courses on the history of disease, Western medicine and public health.
