I am a historian of Central Africa. My interests are primarily in medical history of Congo. My current project focuses on Medical auxiliaries in Congo during the colonial period. In the past, I have researched on malaria and the way colonial administration fought against it in Leopoldville (actual Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo).
