Academic Interests: I am interested in translation in early modern science and medicine. In my PhD thesis I focussed on the Flemish physician Jan Baptista van Helmont (1579-1644) as a case study to better understand the use of Latin and vernacular languages by early modern practitioners of science. I also studied the translations made of Van Helmont works in the second half of the seventeenth century, and why and how the seven translators adapted the original texts for their own purposes. Currently I am especially interested in the use of images as translational steps between theory and practice. How were images used in the early modern education of medical students? And is there a different usage of images in the more practical “sciences”, such as alchemy? In connection to the previous questions I am also looking at how printed books and manuscripts were used side-by-side, and where and how visualisations of knowledge were put to practice.
Early modern history of science and medicine; History of the book; History of reading and writing; Material Culture; Translation; Language; Word-image connections; Visualisations of Knowledge.
Other Interests: (Choral) singing, cooking, books and travelling.
