I am an historian of science, interested in the origins and emergence of experimental science in the early modern period. My research focuses on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century British culture. Between 2013 and 2016, I will be a postdoctoral research fellow at the Technische Universität Berlin in the Berliner Zentrum für Wissensgeschichte, a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and the Technische Universität Berlin.

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.
