Former biochemistry student turned philosopher of science. I am since September 2014 a PhD student in 'Egenis, the Centre for the Study of Life Sciences', at the University of Exeter. My supervisors are John Dupré and Dan Nicholson.
As an epistemologist, I study the creation, development and transmission of knowledge. More precisely, I try to understand in this perspective the contrasted works of two evolutionary biologists, Tom Cavalier-Smith and William Martin, in their attempt to build evolutionary scenarios in the history of life.
