When did you first develop an interest in history?
I had always been intrigued by history in school, but my first serious encounter with the field was Professor Michael Mahoney’s course on the scientific revolution, which I took at Princeton University in my freshman year. I eventually switched my major from chemistry to history of science, and then went on to obtain a PhD in the field.
What projects are you currently working on?
A collection of essays on the role of the private sector in helping countries to achieve universal health coverage. This builds on work reported in Non-Communicable Diseases in the Developing World: Addressing Gaps in Policy and Research (edited with Louis Galambos, Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013).
