Heidi’s dissertation, “Making Technology Appropriate: Modernization, Health, and Development in the Global Cold War,” examines the history of the appropriate technology movement in foreign health assistance. She holds a BA in International Development from McGill University and an MSc in Global Health and Public Policy from the University of Edinburgh. Prior to starting graduate work at Hopkins, she worked as a Project Manager for a USAID contractor in the DR Congo and Ghana.

In 2017, she was a Michael E. DeBakey Fellow in the History of Medicine at the National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health.
