I’m Ari Gross, PhD graduate of the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto. I also hold a MSc in the History and Philosophy of Science from Utrecht University in the Netherlands and an Honours BSc in Physics from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick.
My primary research is in the history and philosophy of scientific visual representations, providing an integrated HPS approach to understanding the complex factors that underlie the forms that scientists give to their visual epistemic tools of the trade. I am also heavily involved in the University of Toronto Scientific Instrument Collection, a graduate-student-led grassroots effort to create a permanent collection of historic scientific instruments pertaining to the University of Toronto.
