History of Science

University of Texas at Austin

I am an author, instructor, and a researcher at the Institute for Historical Studies at The University of Texas at Austin. I am working on my first book, a cultural history of particle physics in the 20th century, to be titled The Invisible World. The book will published in the US by Farrar, Straus & Giroux, in the UK by The Bodley Head, and in a dozen or so other countries and languages around the world. An excerpt from the book won an inaugural Whiting Creative Nonfiction Grant.
