I’m a PhD student at Bielefeld University in Germany. I research topics in philosophy of biology, including individuality, ecological niches, measurement and experimentation practices, adaptationism, and interdisciplinarity. I also work in feminist philosophy, especially on questions to do with developing an understanding of biology and the natural that works for feminist purposes.
My PhD thesis is on individuality in behavioural ecology. Using qualitative, participatory, and conceptual methods I look at how researchers in an interdisciplinary research group understand and study individuality. Topics that come up include uniqueness, persistence, biological necessity, complexity, individualised measurement, operationalisation and approximation.
I also write for Half-Cooked.
