I am a historian of science specializing in the history of science education and educational psychology. Currently I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of the Humanities at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, and a faculty member in the Bard Prison Initiative, which allows incarcerated men and women to earn Bard College degrees. Previously, I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in history and philosophy of science, a position orchestrated jointly by the Center for Civic Engagement at Bard College and the American University of Central Asia, Bard’s partner in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, where I taught from 2013 to 2015. I teach courses in history and philosophy of science and in Bard’s First-Year Seminar program. I earned my PhD at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada.
I also have an active interest in higher education pedagogy. I have previously worked for the Teaching Assistants’ Training Program in the University of Toronto’s Centre for Teaching Support and Innovation, which offers pedagogy workshops, consultations, and other support to graduate student teaching assistants and course instructors. More recently, I have been training and working with Bard College’s Institute for Writing and Thinking to develop and lead workshops on writing-to-learn in STEM disciplines.
