Science History Institute
Roger Turner is a historian of science and technology and current research fellow at the Science History Institute. He studies the uses of science in managing the environment, and — much to his surprise — recently helped make a video game about scientific instruments. Since earning his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania, he has taught at Penn, Dickinson College, and the Rochester Institute of Technology. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the American Meteorological Society, and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
