Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research examines the implications of evolutionary contingency for different topics in philosophy of biology and medicine. For example, in one project, I argue that contingency produces a plurality of individuals in selection, as well as types of major events in evolution. In another project concerning the nature of cancer, I investigate the structural differences among cancer types and how medical interventions inform cancer classificatory practices.
