I am a historian of medicine and public health in the Caribbean and Latin America. My current research looks at medical understandings of fever in the French, British, Spanish, and U.S. Caribbean empires.  See my CV.

I teach undergraduate courses on the history of disease, public health, and empire; the history of medicine and public health in Latin America; and disease in the Caribbean. At the graduate level I offer a readings course on global history of Latin American science and medicine; and readings on disease in the Caribbean. For detailed course descriptions see ISIS.
