Pierrick Bourrat

I am a Senior Lecturer & DECRA Fellow at Macquarie University. I specialise in philosophy of biology. I am also part of the Theory & Method in Biosciences group at the University of Sydney.

From 2017 to 2020 I was a Macquarie University Research Fellow. I completed a PhD in philosophy of biology at the University of Sydney under the supervision of Paul Griffiths in 2015.

My work focuses on core concepts of evolutionary theory such as fitness and heritability, as well as evolutionary transitions in individuality.

Prior to my PhD, I worked as a research assistant in the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford.

My other interests include, the interplay between biological and cultural evolution and the evolution of religious beliefs
