Peta FreestoneI’m a researcher of research, and have interests in public-private partnerships (PPPs), policy and technology for global health, the history of biomedical research fields, academic careers, and research training. My doctoral thesis examined the social structures of product development partnerships (PDPs) in tuberculosis vaccine R&D.

I love to teach. I’ve tutored and guest lectured in sociology, political science, literature and literacy education, and cross-disciplinary methods and theory. I have also created and developed academic writing programs for doctoral researchers such as Thesis Boot Camp at the University of Melbourne, and coordinated professional development workshops for early career researchers.

Currently, I am a visiting researcher in the Centre for African Studies, as well as the Institute Administrator for IASH (The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities), both at the University of Edinburgh.
