My current research interests are the evolution of the genome, evolution of language and norms, scientific modeling, and evolutionary narratives. With my co-workers I have recently been working on the notions of evolutionary drift, coevolution and development, as applied to the evolution of genome and of human mind and culture. My major current project is concerned with the role of genome organization in evolution. The project includes a retelling of the history of 20th century genetics centred on attempts to conceptualize the organization of the genome rather than on the discovery of the gene. Check out my list of publications or the Conceptual Biology Lab for more details.
