She is particularly interested in bodies and identities and how the two are constructed in thinking about reproduction and medicine. Courses she has taught include Women and Health in US History, The History of Reproduction, The History of Contagion, Sciences of the Western Body, and The Physician in History. Her recently published book, Lost: Miscarriage in Nineteenth-Century America, traces the meaning of miscarriage in nineteenth-century America. Placing women's personal writings about pregnancy loss alongside physicians' publications on the topic, the book investigates the transformative changes in how Americans conceptualized pregnancy, medical authority, fetal tissues, and women's reproductive destinies.
