Andreas Weber

Assistant professor University of Twente Netherlands Academic Research

Andreas Weber is an assistant professor in the department of Science, Technology and Policy Studies (STePS) at the University of Twente, The Netherlands. Most of his research and teaching examines the relationship between Science, Technology and Culture (=STC) from a long-term and global perspective. Andreas has a special interest in the history of natural history and chemistry in insular Southeast Asia and Europe. This includes research into how computational technologies can be used to increase access to and learn from biodiversity heritage collections gathered in colonial Indonesia. His research in the digital heritage domain also allows him to reflect upon how the growing use of computational technologies impacts research in the humanities, and, more generally, our understanding of culture and technology in society.
