Dr Evelien Lemmens, PhD


Centre Administrator

Centre: Centre for Public Health & Policy



I am the Centre Administrator for the Centre for Public Health & Policy. I work with the Centre Manager to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the Centre, including matters of finance, recruitment, health & wellbeing, administration, social media, public engagement, and internal events.

I previously completed my PhD in History at QMUL, with my thesis 'Feeling Dyspeptic: Indigestion and Emotional Health in Britain (1780-1910)'. I taught on a range of undergraduate history modules on the histories of emotions, science and technology, gender, consumerism, Britain, and East London. I also convened the module 'Madness and Medicine in Modern Britain' and co-convened the compulsory first-year skills module 'History in Practice'. I remain interested in the history of emotions and illness, especially in the nineteenth-century relationship between digestive and emotional health.
