I am an historian of twentieth-century science and technology with a long-term interest in the history of statistics, computing and information technologies. If you are curious about my work, a list of my publications is here.

In September 2017 I will start a new research project on the history of agricultural meteorology, the discipline which deals with the impact of weather conditions on farming. I will investigate the origins of modern agricultural meteorology, examine the role of observation and experiment in this discipline and discuss how agricultural meteorology has contributed to our understanding of the environment and its influence on human economic activities. The project is supported by a DFG grant and based at the Technische Universität Berlin.
