Molly Nebiolo is a 5th year Ph.D. candidate at Northeastern University and a Friends of the APS Predoctoral fellow for 2021-2022. Her dissertation project, “Constructing Health: Concepts of Well-Being in the Early Atlantic World”, looks at practices and definitions of public health in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century early American city-spaces (Philadelphia, Charleston, and Savannah). She is interested in the intersection of health, urbanizing spaces, and early American history. She also considers herself a digital humanist, and, most recently, worked on mapping the 1721-1722 smallpox epidemic in Boston for the Historic Epidemics project at Northeastern University. Molly also has a great affection for ice cream, camping, and running.
