Personal profile


I am a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow in Humanities and Social Science at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine, University of Manchester. I have a background in veterinary medicine and a PhD in epidemiology and specialise in public health, animal farming and human-animal studies. I worked for three years at the French Food Safety Agency and at the French Ministry of Agriculture where I contributed to the development of new frameworks for animal health and welfare assessment and management in farming. In 2013, I was awarded a grant by the EU Vice-Chancellor Scholarship for Research Excellence to undertake my doctoral studies in veterinary epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, UK. I completed my PhD three years later and moved to the University of Liverpool where I held a postdoctoral position. I joined the Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in 2020.


My research sits at the intersection of the medical humanities, animal studies, sensory studies, and science and technology studies. I study how knowledge and practice are constructed on farms and respond to particular sociocultural, institutional and organisational circumstances. Along with contemporary debates in public health and animal ethics, I am interested in the intersection of human-nonhuman animal relations, health and wellbeing in farming. I am currently developing research in the areas of digital sensing and cow care in farming in France and the United Kingdom, looking at how different sensing devices emerge, are shaped, and impact on the way humans understand and care for cows, human-cow relations, and the ethics of cow care.
