Welcome to my website


I’m a historian of science and medicine, currently one of two Horning Professors in the Humanities at Oregon State University.

My research interests range widely in time, from the sixteenth century to the twentieth, but tend to coalesce around anatomy, natural history, the history of animals, and the history of food.

My books include Obesity and Depression in the Enlightenment, a biography of the physician George Cheyne (?1671-1743) and Experimenting with Humans and Animals: From Galen to Animal Rights as well as the annotated bibliography Natural History and the New WorldA full list of my publications may be found on the Writing tab.  In press is The Courtiers’ Anatomists: Animals and Humans in Louis XIV’s Paris.  Have a look at my blog, Anatomia Animalia, and let me know what you think.

    As a historian of science, do you have to be a psychologist of science?
