About

My research is centered on the History of Early Modern Science, in particular medicine, alchemy and natural philosophy. For my doctoral research, I have studied the emergence of atomistic and corpuscular theories in late Renaissance physiology. I am currently working on the body’s assimilation of food and drugs from the perspective of matter theories.
