Welcoming Andrea Gambarotto to the KLI

We are very happy to welcome our new Postdoctoral Fellow Andrea Gambarotto to the KLI! Andrea is trained in classical German philosophy and is inspired by Kant and Hegel. His research interest lies in complex systems theory, with a particular focus on the relation between teleology, agency and cognition in biological systems, and is influenced by the framework of biological autonomy. Andrea believes that bridging the classical philosophies of nature and current approaches in biological theory will help in advancing knowledge in both sides.

Welcoming Anne Le Maitre to the KLI

We are delighted to welcome our new Postdoctoral Fellow Anne Le Maitre to the KLI! Anne received her doctoral degree from the Université de Poitiers for her dissertation on the adaptation and phylogeny of the inner ear in extant and fossil primates. For her postdoc, she joined the department of theoretical biology at the University of Vienna in 2017 where she studied the evolutionary mechanisms (developmental canalisation, evolvability) underlying morphological variation from an empirical perspective. Here at the KLI, Anne's project... (continued)

Welcoming Barbara Fischer to the KLI

We are delighted to have KLI alumna Barbara Fischer join the KLI again, this time as Group Leader, Evolutionary Biology! Barbara is an evolutionary biologist and data scientist with a background in mathematics and theoretical biology. She studies phenotypic evolution using theoretical and empirical approaches. Her work centers on the classical problem of adaptation vs. constraint in evolution: Why are some traits easily adapted by evolution, while others are not, with particular focus on the evolution of birth in humans. Currently, Barbara is an Elise Richter fellow at the Unit of Theoretical Biology, Department of Evolutionary Biology of the University of Vienna, Austria. (Click on title to continue....)
