I am an historian of science, interested in the origins and emergence of empiricism in the early modern period. My research focuses on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century British culture. From mid-August 2013, I joined the new Berlin Center for the History of Knowledge for a three-year postdoc.

I hold a Ph.D. in history and philosophy of science from Indiana University and M.A.s from Indiana University and Lancaster University. I also have a degree (Laurea) in Physics from the University of Genova (Italy) and worked in the past on research projects in science education and communication.
