Short Bio

I am a prize-winning historian of science with an outstanding international reputation, reflected in my visiting professorships in France, Japan, Sweden and the US. I am the author of 7 research monographs, 24 articles in international peer-reviewed journals, 35 book chapters, and 3 editions of texts; I am the editor or co-editor of 17 collections of essays, the editor or co-editor of 5 exhibition catalogues, and the co-editor of 3 published data-bases. For the past 12 years I have been the editor of an international journal (Nuncius) and I am the co-editor of an international book series (Nuncius series). I have always been particularly interested in studying the history of science from different perspectives. Since the late 1980s I have worked extensively with large scientific collections in archives and museums. This training has brought to light three distinctive qualities in my approach to the history of science: 1. the ability to manage and organise large numbers of different types of historical sources; 2. the determination to make these resources available; 3. the devising of appropriate strategies to achieve these goals.
