  • Research Associate (Wellcome Trust Project) (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)

Biography

Born and raised in the beautiful area of southern Germany, I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies in Geography and English at Heidelberg University. During my studies I was awarded a scholarship to spend one academic year studying in the ‘Waterloo-Laurier Graduate Program in Geography’ in Ontario, Canada, where I was inspired to take modules in health geography. Back in Germany, this enjoyment led me to collaborate with the Heidelberg-based Centre for Medical History, and finally to embark on a PhD in health geography focusing on the spatial and social distribution of diphtheria in 19th century Germany.

Since gaining my PhD in 2005, my active research has covered various aspects of spatial practices and environmental impacts on health and well-being. Space and place are the focus of my research and key themes encompassed the spatial distribution of diseases, spatial practices in psychiatric institutions, as well as geographical dimensions of health inequalities. My main approach has been from interdisciplinary perspectives, resulting in fruitful collaborations across academic disciplines and with community organisations and charities.

In October 2005 I relocated from Germany to England, taking up a post-doc fellowship at the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease at Durham University, where I conducted research on diphtheria immunisation.

In 2007, I joined the Exeter Centre for Medical History, working on the former Devon County Mental Hospital.

Since August 2017, I have been a member of the Glasgow End of Life Studies Group as a Research Associate on the Wellcome Trust funded project ‘Global interventions at the end of life', which is led by Principal Investigator Professor David Clark. In this current appointment I am contributing to creating the third iteration of the World Map of Palliative Care.

Research interests

My research interests are situated at the interface of spatial and environmental humanities and the social sciences, specifically at the intersection of geography, social sciences, and medicine.

Grants

I have been the Principal Investigator on the following grants:

In addition to these research grants, I have received several public engagements grants, which have allowed me to work with a number of community organisations and creative artists:
