Personal profile

Research interests

In my Phd project “Architectural determinants of evolutionary innovation”, I research how the architecture of biological systems can affect their evolvability. To investigate this topic, I use individual-based models that combine knowledge from evolutionary theory together with insights from the fields of Artificial Life and Artificial Intelligence. Understanding the architecture of evolved systems, can uncover interesting design features of these systems. These will not only provide insights in biological evolution, but also in other evolutionary fields, such as Evolutionary Robotics and Evolutionary Artificial Intelligence.
