Hello, my name is Chaokang Tai and I am a historian of science.

In my current PhD project, I focus on astronomer and Marxist Anton Pannekoek (1873-1960) and investigate his astronomical research in relation to the rapidly changing field of astronomy in the early 20th century, the concurrent rise of astrophotography, and his own outspoken Marxist philosophy.

My main scholarly interests are the study of science, history in general, and astronomy.
