Research interests

I’m interested in the evolution of within-organism conflicts and their scientific, clinical, and philosophical implications. My research proceeds along three main avenues.

  1. Developing population genetic theory to understand how genetic conflicts arise and are resolved, and how they fit into general models of social evolution.
  2. Application of evolutionary theory to clinical problems of drug resistance in cancers.
  3. Foundation and history of the gene’s-eye view of evolution.

This talk at the Interdisciplinary Study of Cooperation Winter School provides a quick overview of my work.
