Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles, 2001.
I am currently working on a book length project, tentatively titled: Toils and Tensions of Empire: struggles to control medicine, health and indentured Indian labor in Natal, South Africa. I am also interested in how ideas of race, culture, geography, and climate intersect, particularly with regards to British health tourism to the tropics prior to the 1930s, and life insurance coverage to persons visiting and living in the tropics.
