I am a historian working on environmental history, climate history, the history of science, and maritime history. I am specifically interested in historical volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, research expeditions, the emergence of oceanography, and how scientific institutions collaborated internationally.
In this section, you can learn more about my research projects on:
- the history of the 1783–1784 Icelandic Laki eruption and its impacts on the northern hemisphere
- earthquakes and timekeeping in early America
- and the history of the German Maritime Observatory (Deutsche Seewarte) between 1875 and 1945.
