Associate Professor, History of Technology & Environment

I am a historian of the environment and technology. I am most interested in how human technologies shape the world around us and how we come to understand what is "natural" and what is not, what is acceptable environmental behavior and what is not.

My research spans from medieval to contemporary environmental issues. My primary areas of interest are human-animal relations, the urban environment, and environmental policymaking.

See my website for all my publications.

See my research blog for more details about my current project.
