Angela Cassidy is a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow in the Department of History, King’s College London, where she is investigating the history of bovine TB in the UK since the late 1960s, including public controversies over badger culling. She works across the history and social studies of science, technology and medicine, with specialist interests in public scientific controversies, science and policy, interdisciplinarity, and the histories of humans, animals and environments. Alongside badgers and bovine TB, she has investigated these issues in case studies of ‘One Health’ (the convergence of human and animal health); food risk communication; and popular evolutionary psychology.
