I am Professor of English Literature at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC. My work is in intellectual history of the early-modern period (1500-1700), with a special interest in epistemic issues around the emergence of modern natural science (the "Scientific Revolution"). In 2011-12, I created and organized, at SFU Vancouver, the original iteration of the conference series "Scientiae: Disciplines of Knowing in the Early Modern World." I also organized the 2019 Scientiae conference, held at Queen's University, Belfast.
