Research Interests
I am a historian of medieval and early modern science and medicine, specializing in alchemy and early chemistry. In my teaching and research, I explore alchemy’s relationship with natural philosophy, medicine, and culture in pre-modern Europe, focusing especially on interconnections between textual authority and artisanal practice. My work at PRISM is aimed at reconstructing historical experiments as a means of investigating past science.
