I approach questions of historical epistemology – how knowledge is attained and how it changes over time – through detailed case studies covering the history of the life and the human sciences since the early modern period. I have a particular interest in the history of heredity, focussing on aspects like the interplay of statistics and hereditary research around 1900, the status of the gene as a 'concept in flux', and the intersection of race and kinship in anthropology.
