Daniella McCahey is a Lecturer in the History Department at the University of Idaho, where she teaches courses on the history of science and the history of modern Europe. She received her PhD from the University of California, Irvine in 2018 for research on the history of science in the Ross and Falkland Islands Dependencies during the International Geophysical Year. More broadly, her research seeks to connect the human history of Antarctica to themes in greater world history. She is particularly interested in the contribution of non-human actors to the production of scientific knowledge. She is currently developing new research on the history of women scientists in Polar Regions, the histories of volcanism and botany in Antarctica, and the environmental history of South Georgia.
