I am a historian studying ideas about the politics of technology and machines in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

From 2018 I am a Researcher at The Alan Turing Institute in London where I am working as part of the Living with Machines project, in conjunction with The British Library. The project is a radical collaboration between historians, geographers, literary scholars, data scientists and others, exploring the Industrial Revolution in Britain during the long nineteenth century. I am also a Research Fellow in the Department of History at Queen Mary, University of London.

Until 2017 I worked at CRASSH at the University of Cambridge as part of the Technology and Democracy project, alongside David Runciman and John Naughton.

I continue to be affiliated to the Department of History and Philosophy of Science in Cambridge where I occasionally teach and examine the Sociology of Scientific Knowledge and the History of Modern Science and Technology.
