about / researchpublications / professional / media

I am an art historian working on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British art and history of science. My focus is on women artists, alternative science, spiritualism, and occultism. I am a 2023/24 Wallace Fellow at I Tatti, Harvard University; and Deputy Associate Director of Research at Durham University’s Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies International.

You can find Drawing Blood, my podcast about visual culture, the history of science and medicine, and the macabre, in all the usual places.

If you found this page while searching for a publication by me for which you do not have institutional access, please contact me via email and I will happily provide you with a pdf.
