History of Science and Technology
History of 19th-century physics, electricity and magnetism, analogy in physics, history of aeronautics

Originally from Los Angeles, I received a B.A. in Philosophy from Tufts University.

Currently I work on the uses of analogy in 19th century physics. Most recently this has meant looking at James Clerk Maxwell’s electromagnetic papers and the powerful physical analogies that Maxwell mobilized to aid his analysis of electromagnetic phenomena.

Additionally, I maintain a fascination with flight and aircraft technology in general stretching from Langley and the Wright brothers to the most modern fighter aircraft (with a special focus on jet propulsion).
