Academic Interests

Professor Crowe specializes in the history of science, technology, and medicine. His research focuses on the history of cloning and weaves together narratives from the history of cancer research, the history of embryology, and the history of molecular biology. In his current book project, he looks at the intersections of cloning research and the public conceptions of cloning science, focusing on how these episodes reflect broader trends in society and science.

From 2011-2013, Professor Crowe held a postdoctoral position at the Center for Biology and Society at Arizona State University. While there, he worked on a large digital humanities project, the Embryo Project Encyclopedia, which brought together innovative applied learning, public outreach, and historical research practices. He continues to play a role in this project as well as apply digital humanities methods to his own research.
