Marcus Carrier

Marcus Carrier came to the Institute as a postdoctoral fellow at Bielefeld University, where in 2022 he successfully defended his PhD dissertation on the chemical practices of expert witnesses in 19th-century poisoning trials in Germany and France. This research was funded by the Evangelisches Studienwerk Villgst and the German Research Foundation (DFG). At the Science History Institute Marcus worked on his project, “Chemistry without Substance: The History and Epistemic Status of Computational Chemistry,” which focuses on practices of computer simulation in 20th-century chemistry.

Marcus received his bachelor’s degree in history and chemistry (BA, 2013) and his master’s degree in history, philosophy, and sociology of science (MA, 2016) from Bielefeld University.
