Dr Nicole-Kerstin Baur


Born and raised in the beautiful area of southern Germany, I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies in geography and English at Heidelberg University. During my studies I was awarded a scholarship to spend one academic year studying in the “Waterloo-Laurier Graduate Program in Geography” in Ontario,  Canada, where I was inspired to take modules in health geography. Back in Germany, this enjoyment led me to collaborate with the Heidelberg-based Centre for Medical History, and finally to embark on a PhD in health geography. I gained my PhD in 2005 and moved to England shortly afterwards to take up a post-doc fellowship at the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease at Durham University. In 2007, I joined the Exeter Centre for Medical History.
