Are you looking for a trained professional to help you carry out personal research? Are you looking to have letters or documents translated from German? I am happy to help you.

I am a professional historian with degrees from Princeton and University of Chicago offering research and translation services to individuals, scholars, families, and groups of all kinds.

As a researcher, I specialize in several areas, including military records research and family research. I also carry out customized research projects and can serve as a historical consultant.

As a translator, I specialize in translation from German to English, a language in which I am fluent. As I am able to read texts in the old Fraktur (Gothic) font, and the old German handwriting scripts Sütterlin and Kurrent, I am able to read and translate many materials that are illegible even to native German speakers.

I am also an active historian; my own historical work (click here) focuses on the interaction between scientists and the state, primarily in twentieth century Germany. I am currently working on a book about the largely forgotten German theoretical physicist Pascual Jordan (1902-1980).

Academically, I am currently a Fellow in Residence at the Consortium for History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in Philadelphia. I received my Ph.D. from the Committee on Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science at the University of Chicago in June 2019.
