Bio/Research

I received my PhD in history of science from the University of Notre Dame in 2002 and my BSc in mathematics and physics from the Université de Montréal in 1995. Prior to joining Laurier, I was a faculty in the Department of History at the University of Guelph (2005-2021) and a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (2002-2004).

My monograph Conjuring Science: A History of Scientific Entertainment and Stage Magic in Modern France (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) explores the relationship of science, magic and entertainment in nineteenth and early twentieth-century France, focusing on the world of conjurers and magic shows. I am presently working on a SSHRC-funded project dealing with the relationship of opera, medicine, science, and technology in late-nineteenth-century France.
