I am an Honors Faculty Fellow and Principal Lecturer at Barrett the Honors College at Arizona State University. I’m also affiliated with ASU’s Center for Biology & Society, the History and Philosophy of Science Program, and the graduate program in Human and Social Dimensions in Science and Technology. When I’m not a historian of modern science, I am an evolutionary morphologist. Much to my surprise, in 2007 I was named the Arizona Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for Teaching Excellence. No doubt my students were surprised as well.
This blog has existed in one form or another since January 2004. The early archives, sadly, no longer exist. From January 2006 to May 2009, this blog lived over at Seed Media Group’s Scienceblogs collective as Stranger Fruit. Why I left there is detailed in this post.
Disclaimer: Everything on this site represents my own viewpoint and should in no way be taken to speak for my employer, Arizona State University (and the State of Arizona). Indeed, you shouldn’t imagine that this is how I behave while teaching at ASU.
