Fields of Research: History of homeopathy in Britain and America from 1870 to 1920. Focusing particularly on the research programme within homeopathy at this time, its contribution to medical treatments and medical science, and the relationship between the epistemologies of homeopaths and allopaths.

Ongoing Projects: Waiting to hear about funding for a two year project (ESRC) mapping the various research traditions and projects existing in homeopathy at the moment and investigating ways in which communication between homeopathy and allopathy may be facilitated and problem sharing and collaborative problem solving may begin.
