Laura Newman is a historian of medicine, education, and the workplace. Before joining the Addressing Health team she was postdoctoral research assistant on the AHRC funded Mobile Museum: Economic Botany in Circulation at Royal Holloway and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Prior to this, she completed an AHRC funded collaborative doctoral award at the Science Museum and King’s College London, looking at occupational histories of infection control from 1880 to 1940. She has a long-standing research interest in the medical history of the Post Office from her time as a doctoral student, and has published articles in History of Education and Social History of Medicine on the topic. This material will also feature in her upcoming monograph, Germs and the British Workplace, c.1880-1940 (Routledge: expected 2020). Beyond the university, Laura has also worked and researched in a number of museums, as well as acted as a historical consultant on a variety of projects relating to the history of science and medicine.
