My research is broadly in early-modern intellectual history, with particular interests in manuscript and print culture in the early Royal Society; social networks; and collections and catalogues. I am currently preparing a new edition of the diary of Robert Hooke for Oxford University Press (in collaboration with William Poole at New College, Oxford, who is editing Hooke’s correspondence). I am also working on information processing practices in the early Royal Society: in particular, the translation of natural philosophical texts from European vernaculars into English; and editing practices in the early Philosophical Transactions.
My publications include:
“Unpublished Material from the Memorandum Book of Robert Hooke, Guildhall Library Ms 1758.” Notes and Records of the Royal Society 61 (2007): 129-75.
with William Poole, eds. On Language, Theology, and Utopia by Francis Lodwick. Oxford: Clarendon, 2011.
