My research focuses on science, medicine, religion, commerce and intercultural encounters in the Atlantic world. I'm currently researching a dissertation on the trade in medicinal drugs in the British and Portuguese empires, focusing on how botanicals from indigenous American and African contexts became integrated into a global "medical marketplace." Parallel interests include early modern environmental history and the history of globalization. I blog about history at Res Obscura and like to paint, garden and play music in my free time.
