I am an evolutionary biologist interested in the causes and consequences of genomic conflicts. I am a Wenner-Gren Fellow. I spent the first part of the fellowship at the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, hosted by David Haig, and am now at the Evolutionary Biology Centre at Uppsala University.
My works is also deeply rooted in the history and philosophy of biology, and I am currently writing a book on the gene’s-eye view evolution, also known as selfish gene theory (to be published by Oxford University Press).
I did my PhD work on transposable element and genome size evolution with Stephen Wright at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Throughout my time at U of T I was a Junior Fellow at Massey College. Before that I read biology at the University of Edinburgh.
