Dominic is a historian and philosopher of science, technology, and engineering. He is dedicated to historicising the Everyday Cyborg. At the outset he is focussing on the history of attached and implanted medical devices as objects of research, industry, medicine, and regulation.  Previous projects have concerned the functions of narrative in science, understanding contemporary biological engineering, and the history of intellectual property in plants. In 2021 he co-organised the online seminar series ‘What is Epistemic Decolonization?
