My specialization is the history of technology and science, which allows me to advise curators on historical printing and papermaking. As a technical expert, my research is a type of "book archaeology," integrating digital microscopy techniques and knowledge about historical printing practices. Much of my research focuses on marginalized groups and reconstructing history from the study of printed artifacts. I also study organizations and communities, with a special interest in moments of generational transition. I have experience in publicly-engaged research as well as working with ethnic and religious communities on preserving heritage materials.
