I am a Ph.D. student in the history of science program here at UCSB. My current research is about computing, computer networks, and the influence of American Cold War culture on the design of digital infrastructure.
I have previously written about Carl Sagan and the connections between the transcendent popular scientific idea of the “cosmic perspective” and the American counterculture of the 1970s.
My advisor is Patrick McCray.
