Professor Ochs graduated from the University of Toronto's Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology. Her research has included a study of the Royal Society of London's History of Trades program, a quantitative study of the Colorado School of Mines mining engineers who graduate between 1900 and 1940, a study of women and technology, and most recently, a search for frameworks that make sense of the history of technology and science. Professor Ochs has taught several classes at the Colorado School of Mines, including a traditional history of science and technology class and a class that focuses on the relationship of technology and society using science fiction. She is a member of the Society for the History of Technology (and the Women in Technological History group) and the History of Science Society. She is currently working on a book that incorporates prehistory and archaic states into the history of technology.
