Before I moved to the Bay Area, I completed a masters in history of science at the University of Cambridge, where my research focused primarily on 19th & 20th century pregnancy, childbirth and reproductive medicine. As an undergraduate, I studied history, gender studies, and Brazilian studies at Princeton University. For a list of my published writing, please see here.
