I am a recent Ph.D. in the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with broad interests in all three of these fields. My 2022 dissertation, titled The Place of Science in Nineteenth-Century American Catholic Higher Education, added religion and education to this mix. These subjects and more are fair game for my future endeavors as I enjoy my ‘retirement’ after more than two decades of graduate student life.

Keeping me busy these days is an eclectic mix of activities and research projects. My principal day-to-day activity is being a member of the Local Organizing Committee for the upcoming International Congress of History of Science and Technology to be held next year in Dunedin, New Zealand, where my main role is being the assistant to the co-chairs of the International Program Committee Susan Lederer and Ana Simões. One of my current projects includes exploring the teaching of telegraphy at the University of Notre Dame during the late nineteenth century for which I received a research travel grant from the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism at the University of Notre Dame. Another project involves my presenting a talk at the next Scientific Instrument Symposium to be held in September at Canada’s Science and Technology Museum, the Ingenium, in Ottawa. Other items on my plate at the moment include the history of science in Japan, supercomputers, and chickens; they are all a complete meal of engaging and nourishing interests. Stay tuned for updates.
