I am history of science graduate student at the University of Minnesota. I am primarily interested in the history of evolutionary thought, particularly how the theory (or theories) has developed over time, how past scientists thought the process of evolution worked and what metaphors they used to describe the theory, and how those scientists and their views have come to be portrayed by later developers of the science. I am also intrigued by non-adaptive evolution (e.g., Lynch, Kauffman, etc.) and its role in modern evolutionary biology, and relatedly, whether or not biology requires an "extended synthesis."
