Fiona Bowler is a History Ph.D student at the University of Southampton.

My research focusses upon the development of the British nuclear test veteran community, and its relationship to national service, nuclear weapons, and the soldier’s body.

I am supervised by Professor Kendrick Oliver and Dr Jonathan Hunt, and hold a Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarship.

Research interests

My research interests include the history of science, technology, and medicine, with a particular interest in the Cold War and nuclear weapons. I have produced work on health and safety on Christmas Island during Britain’s atmospheric hydrogen bomb tests, the Manhattan Project’s plutonium injection experiments, and the impact of nuclear testing upon indigenous populations.
