I am co-curating an international museum exhibition with Dr Claas Kirchhelle about the past and present of typhoid fever: www.typhoidland.org.
Our feature animation for this exhibition won the Bristol Science Film Prize. We also received extensive media coverage by BBC One South, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service. In reviews, the Daily Info called it “An Audacious Exhibition” and The New Scientist picked it as one of their “Best new exhibitions”.
As part of this project, we edited a special supplement for the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases for which we produced a summary article for The Conversation and our research was covered in over 90 national and international outlets reporting (the World Economic Forum, New York Post, The Sun, and The Telegraph).
Previously I designed a ‘Voyage in Vaccines’ event for European Researchers Night 2017 (‘Curiosity Carnival’, ca. 10,000 visitors).
On vaccine attitudes, I have spoken on the radio for BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, BBC Radio 5 Live Nihal Arthanayake show, the Alexis Conran and Matthew Wright show on talkRADIO, and TV for BBC World News as well as for the United Nations Verified Campaign. I have presented at several public events, at the European Health Forum, WFPHA at the World Health Assembly, Vaccines Today, IF Festival in Oxford and at Vaccini e Obbligo: tra Medicina, Etica e Politica, University of Turin. I have also been interviewed for The Times, Nature, Wired, Newsweek, Der Standard, Metro, Devex on access to vaccination and health misinformation, and I was on the Reddit AskScience AMA Series answering questions about vaccines and society.
During my PhD I co-organised a podcast and workshop series on neglected tropical diseases: www.challengingneglect.com and more recently I was invited to give a talk for the Global Health Histories Seminar on Women in the History of Tropical Medicine, which was organised by the University of York and Fiocruz in Brazil, and live-streamed on YouTube.
