Associate Professor

My research stretches the history, philosophy and social studies of the life sciences. I have worked extensively on the history of taxonomy, with a focus on Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), and on the cultural history of heredity, including the history of race and kinship in anthropology. I am Associate Director of the Centre for the Study of Life Sciences (Egenis) and member of the Centre for Medical History at the University of Exeter.

I am Editor-in-Chief of the journal History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences and co-direct the Ischia Summer School for the History of Life Sciences. I hold an Honorary Chair at the University of Lubeck and have been a guest scholar at the Max Planck Institute for History of Science.
