I study people who historically have not been considered scientists or technologists but who have, nonetheless, produced and applied knowledge about the natural world. I am especially interested in histories of gender, computation, mathematics, and community. I am an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University, holding appointments at Lyman Briggs College in the History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Science group and at James Madison College in the Social Relations and Policy group. I am a member of the Core Faculty for MSU's Center for Gender in Global Context. My book A People’s History of Computing is under contract with Harvard University Press. My next book will likely be a history of the (ridiculous) idea that girls can’t do math. I currently and enthusiastically serve as a Contributing Editor for the magazine Lady Science, focused on women in science, technology, and medicine. My research has received recognition and support from, among others, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Charles Babbage Institute for the History of Information Technology, and the IEEE.
