Overview

I am interested in the history of public health interventions and the relationship between public health policies and population health outcomes. My publications encompass a diverse range of topics from sex differentials in mortality to the health-related aspects of urban governance. My recent book, Instrusive Interventions: Public Health, Domestic Space, and Infectious Disease Surveillance in England 1840-1914 (University of Rochester Press, 2015), examines the history of public health interventions such as infectious disease notification, institutional and domestic isolation, disinfection, and contact tracing. My next book is about public health in Baltimore since World War II, based on the course I currently teach in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
