Honorary University Fellow

My research interests are in the fields of health and history, with particular focus on herbal history, history of domestic medicine, early modern household healthcare.

During my career in adult, further and higher education I gained a postgraduate degree in Women’s Studies at the University of Exeter, beginning a persisting interest in the history of medicine. I am also trained as a consultant medical herbalist and I joined Middlesex University, London, in 2000, to teach on their degree programme for professional clinical practitioners of herbal medicine.  In 2008 I completed my doctorate on early modern household medicine at Middlesex University. I am a member of the Advisory Board for the Journal of Herbal Medicine (Elsevier) and I co-ordinate the Herbal History Research Network JISCMail discussion list.

My latest book is Household Medicine in Seventeenth-Century England published in 2016.
