Welcome to my website! I am a historian of science and medicine at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. I am trying to find out how medical practices and objects shape each other and, in turn, the medical experiences of the lay public. How, for example, did personal scales influence our ideas on what constitutes a healthy body? And why is it so hard to visit anatomical collections if you are not a (future) doctor? I have answered the second question in my previous research project. The first question is the focus of my current project.
