I am a historian of public health whose research broadly examines historical, social, and cultural understandings of health and disease in African and African American communities.

My doctoral dissertation, “I Can’t Breathe: The Rise of Asthma in Black Urban America, was an intellectual history of medical and cultural perceptions of race and asthma in nineteenth and twentieth century America.
