I can probably answer most general questions about the history of science, technology and engineering from ancient to current; if I don't know a specific answer I can probably refer a questioner to an appropriate source. I have done original research in the history of computing and in British science and engineering in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries.
I am a PhD student at the University of York, writing about the carrying trade in the 18th century; my previous work at the university includes the early history of plate railways. I have taught courses in the history of science and engineering at York and other universities, and have presented several papers on various subjects in this field at academic conferences. I am also a practicing civil engineer.
BA--Berkeley, MSc--Berkeley, MA--York, currently working on a PhD at York.

OK, I was at the university library last night and picked up two books on Robert Hooke--one was the one I'd mentioned previously, which seems to have nothing in it about cells, and the other was this one:
Hi Rose--thanks for writing. You've already done what I would have done and checked Hooke's public writings, though as I'm sure you know neither Hooke nor anyone else in his milieu can really be considered
Hi Taurean--I'm sorry, I have no idea how to help you with this! You could try getting in touch with a genealogical expert--if you knew the details of his birth or baptism it's possible you or an archivist
