I am a writer, editor, and historian living in Philadelphia. I am currently a fellow at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, where I am researching the history of chemistry sets as part of a new project on the historical lives of girls’ toys. I am also the Managing Editor of Somatosphere, a journal of the medical humanities.
I consult widely on historical projects, give lectures to general audiences and academics, and think a lot about what we are all learning about technology from TV. I am also the founder and host of Making Up Technology, a podcast devoted to the history of technology launching in 2015.
