Public engagement

I regularly contribute to news media on the topics of epidemics, disability and vaccination. My work has been published on the BBC, The Guardian and El País. As member of The Reluctant Internationalists research group, I am involved in providing training for secondary school teachers on Cold War History and participates in public history events such as historical walking tours in London. I have also done voluntary work for the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, an advocacy group for basic human rights. 

Contribution to discipline

I am co-editor of the journal Social History of Medicine, published by Oxford University Press. I have also been the curator of several online series, namely After the End of Disease on interdisciplinary collaborative website Somatosphere, and Europe in Crisis on The Reluctant Internationalists, co-edited with Jessica Reinisch (Birkbeck).
