Dr Natasha Feiner

Honorary Research Fellow

I am an historian of health and medicine in twentieth-century Britain with particular interests in:

  • industrial psychology
  • occupational health and safety
  • the NHS
  • the history of emotions
  • oral history

My doctoral research examined fatigue and the politics of work in post-war Britain, with a particular focus on aircrew. I am currently developing a new project on stress and burnout among healthcare professionals.


I completed a BA in History and Ancient History at the University of Exeter in 2011, and then an MSc in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology at the University of Oxford in 2012. In 2014 I began my doctoral research under the supervision of Professor Mark Jackson. After completing my PhD thesis in 2017, I taught at the Universities of Exeter and Bristol before beginning a postdoctoral research fellowship in 2018.
