My professional interests include women's history, French history, modern European history, world history and reproductive history.  My current research projects include research into the history of midwifery in Europe, with particular focus on Madame L., a notorious midwife and abortionist in London during the first four decades of the twentieth century.  I am also working on a book-length project entitled The Invention of Choice: Reproductive Decisions and the Politics of Motherhood in France.
