Research Interests

My primary interests are in environmental history and the history of science and technology. I enjoy learning and writing about the periods of time when new technology and science are in their infancy; when understanding is in its early and stages and people experiment with the extent of new discoveries, theories, inventions, and innovations.

Current Project

My current project is on NASA’s analog missions where researchers attempt to simulate off-world environments. They use terrestrial environments as analogs to extraterrestrial ones, in order to test experiments, understand other planets and life, and prepare for space exploration.
