I am a co-lead, alongside Caroline Sumpter and Diarmid Finnegan, of the Science and Culture Research Group at Queen's. This is a cross-faculty research initiative. Our areas of expertise include science and material culture, the mind in science and culture and science and prediction. We bring together researchers with expertise from the early medieval period to the present day, and include historians and geographers, linguists and literature and science specialists and creative arts practitioners in drama, film and sonic arts. Our members have international research interests, from Europe (including France, Spain, Ireland and Britain) to North and Latin America and the Global South.
