University of Missouri
I'm a philosopher of biology working with Prof. Andre Ariew on natural selection explanations and the concept of fitness. I examine the implications of niche construction (the ability of organisms to define their experienced environments) on current philosophical interpretations of fitness & selection. I draw heavily from evolutionary developmental biology, which is why I am currently visiting University of Vienna and the KLI Institute and co-wrote a paper with developmental biologist Scott F. Gilbert.
