Adam Richter, PhD, History and Philosophy of Science and Technology

Thanks for visiting my site! I’m a historian of science who specializes in the relationship between science and religion, particularly in early modern Europe. I am currently researching the role of anti-Catholicism in early modern English science. My PhD thesis, which I successfully defended in November 2017, addresses the connections between science and religion (or natural philosophy and theology) in the complex and fascinating career of John Wallis (1616-1703), the Oxford-based mathematician and Anglican minister.

Now that I’ve completed my PhD, I’m excited to continue my career of academic research and teaching. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to discuss any aspect of my research or teaching!
