Clare received her undergraduate degree in the history of science from Brown University. Her primary research focuses on the development of twentieth-century mathematics in conjunction with the changing shape of higher education. These research interests are shaped by the following questions: to what extent has the cultural specificity of a time period affected mathematicians' outlook and research? How are mathematical knowledge and practice historically specific to and constantly in dialogue with other disciplines? Using these questions as a broad framework, Clare would like to explore the institutionalization of applied mathematics and the evolving practices of scientific communication.
