I study the social and cultural life of machines, focusing on the intertwined histories of nature, technology, and social order in modern Europe and North America. My research is particularly interested in understanding what technological failures reveal about the historical place of machines and machine behaviors in the fabric of modern societies. I also develop digital and artifact-based methods and computational tools for investigating that history.
