Andrew Tam, like most Singaporeans, is obsessed with food. While pursuing a graduate degree in the Program of History of Science and Medicine at Yale University, he decided to consume hawker food in the form of articles, newspaper clippings, and photographs. More broadly, his other interests include how knowledge is transferred and created while interacting with recipes and replications. His MA thesis explored the material encounters of seventeenth-century chymists, focusing on the recreation of steel in a modern chemical laboratory.
