Dr. Yale received her Ph.D. in the history of science from Harvard University. She is especially interested in the history of communication technologies (from the alphabet to the Internet), British history, and the relationship between the development of science, ideas of nationhood, and commerce in the early modern world. Her article, "With Slips and Scraps: How Early Modern Naturalists Invented the Archive," was the 2009 winner of Book History's graduate student essay prize. She is currently working on a book on the ways in which scientific knowledge and communities in early modern Britain were structured by the available modes of communication (conversation, manuscript, print), titled Manuscript Technologies: Cultures of Communication in Early Modern Science.
