Field

Sephardic/Mizrahi Jewish History, Modern Middle East, Mandate Palestine and Israel, History of Medicine and Science

Research Interests

My dissertation, Oculists in the Orient: Trachoma, Zionism and Global Health, investigates how the eye disease trachoma became a resilient cultural and political site in Mandate Palestine and Israel through medical practices, scientific discourses, and ethnography in the twentieth century. I trace how eye health became a conduit for Zionist social welfare practices, global Jewish medical philanthropy, and postcolonial medical diplomacy.
