My research focuses on the history of health and healing in Africa more generally, but with a particular interest in biomedicine, especially the history of medical education and professionalisation, missionary and public hospitals, and community oriented primary health care in the region of South Africa during the 20th century. I also have an interest in work on the history of women and gender. My book, A School of Struggle: A History of the Durban Medical School and the Education of Black Doctors in South Africa, was released in 2013. I teach "The Making of the Modern World" and "Theory and Methods in Historical Research". For more, see my staff profile.
