I am a historian of eighteenth-century France with particular interests in cultural history, the history of science and medicine, and women's and gender history. I published my first book, Sentimental Savants: Philosophical Families in Enlightenment France, with the University of Chicago Press in 2016. I am now working on a book about medical practitioners in the Atlantic World.
