Along with colleagues at HMS, FAS, and Countway library, I am interested in mentoring students who wish to pursue projects on the history of medicine. I am most interested in medical therapeutics and clinical decision making, especially in the United States in the twentieth century. My only research is currently focused on cardiology and cardiac surgery. But I am willing to work with students whose interests go further afield, in terms of specialty, time, or place. I hope to produce historical scholarship that has relevance for health and health policy today.

I am willing to either (1) mentor students who want to pursue a project of their own design in history of medicine or (2) find a project related to my current research that could be done as a SiM project. I currently have projects related to the history of cardiac surgery, heart disease in India, and the links between air pollution and heart disease.
The research would involve: defining a research question, identifying a collection of sources (e.g., published sources, archives, oral histories, etc.), examining those sources, developing arguments, and writing a scholarly analysis.
