Your Background

Your Biography

I'm currently studying for PhD in history of technology at the Centre for the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Leeds, UK. My thesis is on the institutional invention of wireless communications in Britain up to 1908, focussing on three case studies - the British Post Office, the Admiralty, and the Institution of Electrical Engineers. Previously, I worked as the Web Officer at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford for four years and maintain my interest in museums by volunteering with the Physics collection of scientific instruments at the Museum of the History of Science at the University of Leeds.
