Research Overview

Technology and energy have played an enormous role in the development of civilization, but the process by which technologies and various energy resources were developed and utilized remains an area of great opportunities for historical researchers.

My research interest is to deeply explore the history of these fields and present them in ways that offer new insights and understanding about their role in our modern world.
