History of Science and Technology
History of scientific cultures and "Public Science," Intellectual Histories of Early Modern and Enlightenment Europe, popular representations of scientific practice in the Early Modern period, Scientific Utopianism

As a second year student in HSTM, I'm especially excited about being able to work more directly on my research interests in the history of early modern science. Following examples in other sub-fields of history, my Master's thesis focused on issues of popularized “public” science in eighteenth-century America; a foundation which I hope to build upon in the coming years to include wider swaths of “public science” in a Western intellectual context. I'm also very much interested in the pedagogy of the History of Science, particularly as it applies to teaching non-History majors with a strong scientific background. In what little free time a life of research allows, I'm also a percussionist and avid fencer.
