Sara Tridenti is a first-year Ph.D. student in the History of Science Program at Princeton. She is primarily interested in the history of chemistry in early-modern Europe, with a focus on the intersections between the practical, visual, and linguistic tools used within the field. She maintains a broad interest in intellectual history and hopes to investigate how various social and cultural forces have acted to influence the practices of the natural sciences over time.
Sara graduated from Yale University in 2019 with a B.S. in Chemistry and the History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health. Her undergraduate thesis explored the ways in which chemistry emerged as an academic discipline in European universities during the seventeenth-century. Before coming to Princeton, she worked as an English language teaching assistant for Fulbright Austria and explored the mountain ranges in her home state of New Hampshire.
