My main disciplinary affiliation is European modern environmental history, but I could also be termed a social historian, a historical geographer, or a digital humanist. Currently I am DAAD Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
My most recent research activities focus on the social history of the environment and on the history of science. In particular, I have analysed conflicts about rights to access resources, the history of nature conservation, and the development of the concept of mean sea level.
On this site you may find my vita, a list of publications and talks, my teaching, and a link to my not so frequently updated blog. You can also access part of my research notes and transcribed data via a dedicated Zotero group and my Figshare repository.
