Joseph D. Martin, PhD
Assistant Professor of History of Science and Technology @University of Durham
Joseph D. Martin is an assistant professor of history of science and technology at Durham University in England and co-editor-in-chief of Physics in Perspective. He previously taught at the University of Cambridge, Michigan State University, Colby College, and the University of Minnesota, where he earned his PhD in 2013, and he has twice been a fellow of the Consortium for History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in Philadelphia. His historical research probes the sciences of stuff—that is, solid state physics, condensed matter physics, and materials science—and the ways in which physicists’ philosophical and ideological commitments shaped the institutional structure and cultural authority of these fields. These issues are explored in his book Solid State Insurrection: How the Science of Substance Made American Physics Matter (Pittsburgh, 2018).
