I am a Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at King's College, London.
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 serve on the Lead Editorial Team of Catalyst: Feminism, Theory, Technoscience, and as an Associate Editor at BioSocieties.
I am the author of three books:
I serve as Education Lead for the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, as Workstream Lead on Attainment Gaps for the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy, and as Culture Advocate for my faculty to the King's Cultural Community.
