History does not unfold separate from psyche. The stories that have been traditionally told about the evolution of scientific thought often neglect the humanity of the people, describing their experiences as if they were nothing more than a series of facts listed on a timeline.

My research in education, depth psychology, and the history of science is currently focusing on women alchemists who have sometimes been acknowledged; however, more often been dismissed, mocked, or killed outright.

This site presents a very small portion of my research and some highlights of their stories, as well as links to other scholars' work.
