    Personal Statement

    I have published extensively on the histories of race and medicine under American slavery and Jim Crow and am particularly interested in histories of hospitals, anatomy, and human experiments. I am currently working on a monograph - 'Before Tuskegee: racism, power and the culture of medicine under slavery and Jim Crow' - examining human experimentation in the United States before and after the Civil War.
