My personal research focuses on 19th-century Natural Science, particularly focusing on Richard Owen, his reputation in history, his museum work, the foundation of the Natural History Museum (London), and how his museological endeavours affected his scientific method. This is what I am most passionate about and what I hope to pursue in future.
