Biography

I am an evolutionary biologist with a fascination for new ideas emerging at the borders between disciplines. For many years I have been interested in the interdisciplinary field of evo-devo (evolutionary developmental biology) and I am now also very interested in evolutionary astrobiology. My latest book, Life through Time and Space (Harvard, 2017) is in this field. I have a passion for explaining science in as jargon-free a way as possible; hence my writing of several books in the popular science genre - for details, see Books section under my Publications heading.
