I am a DPhil candidate within the History of Medicine, Science, and Technology and Magdalen College. My DPhil research considers disease in the Spanish American Wars of Independence, 1810-30. My project sits at the intersection of military, medical, and environmental history. I am interested in a range of questions, including how diseases were conceived of at the time, how diseases may have affected the course of the conflict, and how the experience of war shaped the development of medical institutions and ideas at independence.
I am a member of the organising committee of the Oxford Latin American Graduate Network (OLAGN), which organises seminars, film screenings, social events and conferences to build a community of students studying Latin America from across different faculties.
