Supervision

Tjap 032

If you are interested in being supervised by me, please get in touch by email or phone: a.weber@utwente.nl. My field of expertise lies in the long-term development of science and technology (including histories of science, global history, and the history of museum collections and archives) and digital heritage (with a special focus in biodiversity heritage collections). I am in particular interested in projects in which technology is used to disclose and learn from valuable scientific collections. Here is a list of projects, which I am currently supervising and which I have supervised in the past:
