I am a Professor in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at King's College London, and currently serve as Head of Department.
My research explores feminist, antiracist, and postcolonial engagements with science, technology, and medicine. Broadly, I am engaged in ongoing research in three intersecting areas: racism and health, feminist theory and biomedicine, and social studies of pharmaceuticals.
I am the author of three books:
I am also deeply engaged in fostering scholarly communities, including at locally King's -- for example, through the Culture, Medicine & Power Research Group and Queer@King's -- and internationally: I serve on the Lead Editorial Team of Catalyst: Feminism, Theory, Technoscience, and as an Editor at BioSocieties.
