David Gooding is Director of the Science Studies Centre of the University of Bath and Director of Studies of the MSc in Science, Culture and Communication. During 2002-2003 he held a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for research on visualization in the sciences and from 1991-1993 he was a Medical Research Council Research Fellow for a project on Simulating Natural Intelligence. His main research interests are visualization and visual inference, science communication, agent-based simulation of scientific discovery, and the history of experiment in the sciences.
