Luis Aue is a postdoctoral fellow in the ERC project “Socialist Medicine. An Alternative Global Health History”. His research focuses on the history of global and international health and combines scholarship from history, political science, and science and technology studies.

He defended his doctoral thesis in political science in March 2022 at Free University Berlin. The thesis forms the basis for his current book project on the global technological history of diarrheal diseases. The book explores how “domination in the laboratory” contributed to different technological designs for the global South and North.
