She is currently working on a monograph about the relationship between Jews, colonial medicine, and postwar global health in the twentieth century that centers on the eye-disease trachoma. She was previously the Hazel D. Cole Postdoctoral Fellow in the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Washington, Seattle. Her recent article, “Eyeing Africa: The Politics of Israeli Ocular Expertise and International Aid, 1959-1973,” has appeared in the Spring/Summer 2016 issue of Jewish Social Studies.
