My main interest is the interrelation of medicine and society via the notion and definition of health. My research also covers the social history of hospitals in Germany, the history of public health, the problem of science and practice in medicine and the problem of history in medicine. My recent research focuses on the history of malaria, the science of human mobility, and the social effects of modern medicine in an intercultural context, especially in the Eurasian transfer of knowledge.
