Giuseppe Arcimboldo's The Admiral, a 16th-century depiction of a holobiont.

I'm a philosopher of biology and science at the Higher School of Economics, in Moscow.

My research focuses on how modeling, idealization and inference work in science, particularly in biology, as well as on the causal and explanatory scope of natural selection.

From 2019-2021, I'll be a member of the ISHPSSB education committee.
