Alison Moulds is Engagement and Impact Manager on the Wellcome Trust-funded Living with Feeling project at Queen Mary University of London and Engagement Fellow on the Wellcome Trust-funded Surgery & Emotion project at the University of Roehampton.
She was a part-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant on Diseases of Modern Life between 2018-19. During this time she researched living and working conditions in the retail industry in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. She focused on representations of the ‘living-in’ system and was interested in cultural constructions of work-life balance. She was previously a DPhil candidate on the Constructing Scientific Communities project, also at the University of Oxford. Her thesis was about how medical practitioners constructed their professional identities through their writing in the Victorian period.
