Research interests

My research covers two related areas:

  • the role of architecture in seventeenth-century scientific and academic circles
  • the technical and mathematical background of early modern architects, engineers, and gardeners

My more general interests lie in

  • the shared material culture of art, science, and technology
  • the professional and intellectual world of early modern artisans
  • architectural treatises and the printed book
  • cartography and its relation to landscape
  • the urban history of Paris
  • court culture and patronge

I have published a monograph, François Blondel: Architecture, Erudition, and the Scientific Revolution (Routledge, 2010) and was co-curator of the exhibition Compass and Rule: Architecture as Mathematical Practice in England 1500-1750 (ex. cat. Yale University Press, 2009).  I have recently edited a collected volume of essays: Geometrical Objects: Architecture and the Mathematical Sciences 1400-1800 (Springer, 2014).
