My current research focuses on the history of nineteenth-century science writing. My PhD dissertation, which I am currently turning into a book, examines the making and communicating of science in the Arctic through travel narratives in the Danish, British, and Canadian contexts between 1818 and 1883.
I also have research interests in environmental history, the historical relationship between science and religion, and in women explorers and science writers.
I am currently co-editing volume 7 of the John Tyndall Correspondence Project, and in the
