I teach history of science, technology, and medicine in Bogotá.

 

 

I was trained in València, Oxford and Leeds, in physics, science education, history of medicine, history and philosophy of science, museology and scientific instrument studies.

 

 

My training and research has been supported by Spanish, British, European and American fellowships. I have been Resident Scholar at the Dibner Library, Fellow at the John W. Kluge Center, Marie Curie Fellow at the Université Paris Ouest, Visiting Scholar at Cinvestav, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology STS Program, the Institut d'Història de la Medicina i de la Ciència 'López Piñero', the Museu de Astronomia e Ciências Afins, and the Colegio de México, and Spencer Fellow of the National Academy of Education.

 

 

I have been a lecturer at the Universitat de València, and a tutor at the University of Leeds and the University of Oxford, and have taught as an invited lecturer in a number of history of science and science education postgraduate programs in Europe and Latin America.

 

 

My work is comparative and cross-national, and cuts across disciplines such as history of science, technology and medicine, history of education, book history, international relations, visual studies and scientific instrument studies.
