Biography

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Politics, and a faculty member in the Center for Science, Technology and Society at Drexel University. My research and teaching focus on 1) environmental health and the politics of care, 2) the spaces in which health and disease are produced (homes, cities, clinics, and public health networks), and 3) how embodied experiences of health and disease are technologically mediated. My research has focused on the experiences of asthmatics and how asthma is cared for across different U.S. contexts. I am currently writing my first book, To Breathe: The Place of Asthma in U.S. Healthcare. I also lead a Philadelphia-based project focused on air quality, sustainability, and health in the context of late industrialism. I established EnviroHealthSense in spring 2014 to document this work, the work of Drexel students who are involved with these projects, and to reflect on environmental health issues more broadly.
