Natasha Feiner

I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Medical History. Broadly put, my research interests lie in the histories of occupational health and safety.

My current research examines fatigue and work in post-1945 Britain, with a specific focus on aircrew. I am particularly interested in how the relationship between fatigue, productivity, and safety has been used as an industrial bargaining tool.

Before joining the ‘Lifestyle, Health and Disease’ project in September 2014, I completed a BA in History and Ancient History at Exeter in 2011 and then an MSc in the History of Science, Medicine and Technology at Oxford University in 2012.
