Jennifer became a Teaching Fellow in Medical Humanities at Imperial College London in 2018, following a fixed-term lectureship in Cultural and Intellectual History at Queen Mary University of London (2016-18).
Prior to these appointments, she worked on the 'Diseases of Modern Life' project as a Research Assistant, where she conducted research in two of the project's key areas: 'Addiction' and 'Climate and Health'. Jennifer's research explored concepts of alcoholism and addiction in the nineteenth-century, particularly in relation to women drinkers; relationships between individuals and 'air technologies' such as the compressed-air bath and respirator; and the role of the press in disseminating medical and scientific ideas.
