My research interests are centered on American social and urban history, looking at the unique challenges that face individuals when they live in cities – i.e. housing, employment, crime, the maintenance of the municipal infrastructure, education. Implicit within this framework is also the ever-present influence of class, race and gender on American society. I am particularly interested in the way that epidemics influence urban development, taking into consideration the above characteristics and the role of the legal system – both the legislature and judicial system – in balancing individual rights with those of society at large.
