Deborah Coen, Professor of History and chair of the history of science department at Yale University, is the author of The Earthquake Observersand Vienna in the Age of Uncertainty. Before coming to Yale, she taught for ten years in the history department at Barnard College and was Director of Research Clusters for the Columbia Center for Science and Society.
