cesare-berlin I am a Gerda Henkel research fellow at the Technische Universität Berlin. I received my PhD from the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Indiana University, Bloomington (2011).

My work focuses on science, experimentation and practical knowledge in early modern Europe. My new project, The Weight of Things, has recently been awarded a DFG 3-year research grant.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Berlin Center for the History of Knowledge. I also worked for several years in leading digital history projects: The Chymistry of Isaac Newton and The Newton Project.
