Professor of Science, Technology and Society, University of Glasgow

My work has combined scientific practice with studies of science 'from the outside'. My first two degrees were in Physics from Simon Fraser University in Canada and the third was in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Leeds, UK.

Varied industrial and institutional working environments, clients and sponsors provided experience relevant to my subsequent training and research in the history, ethics and sociology of science and technology. I taught both physics and the history and philosophy of science as an interdisciplinary Research/Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds, and was a historian of technology at the University of York before joining the University of Glasgow.
