About Me

I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of the History of Science and Technology at Johns Hopkins University. My dissertation concerns the history of women in physics in the United States, 1870-1940. More broadly my interests/specialties include: gender in the history of science, women in physics, and the history of science education.
