Graduate Student in History of Science
  • Region: Italy

  • Theme: History of Religion, History of Science, History of Medicine

I am interested in early modern medicine, primarily in the Italian peninsula. In the past, I have worked on the intersections of religion and medicine in times of plague and examined the ways in which these intersections impacted the production of medical knowledge. My current research interests include early modern plague and the reshaping of the medical profession in light of its disappearance from Europe in the 18th century. More broadly, I am interested in studying the cultural construction of illness, disease, and the body. I have graduated from the Adi Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students at Tel Aviv University, and hold an MA in History.
