"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
Charles Darwin, Origin of Species.
At present, I am a lapsed geologist trying to navigate the complex (you expected that pun somewhere, right?) landscape of complexity science.
2009-Present MSc+PhD in Complexity Science, University of Warwick.
2005-2009 Master of Earth Sciences (Upper Second), University of Oxford.
My long-term goal is to provide the study of biological evolution on long time scales (palaeontology) with the mathematical rigour it desperately needs.
