I am a Senior Researcher at the University of Chester. My forthcoming book, A Town Called Asbestos: Environmental Change, Health, and Resilience in a Resource Community will be released by the University of British Columbia Press on 1 January 2016. My research interests are in transnational environmental health and contamination, and I always seek to blend historical research with public engagement.
