My research concerns genetic, biological, neurobiological, and evolutionary explanations of human psychology and behavior, ranging from personality to political orientation, and ecompassing fields such as behavior genetics, neuroeconomics, and “genopolitics.” Related research concerns the philosophy of biology and science.
Overview of several sources of genetic and epigenetic heterogeneity between germ cells of the same two individuals and between monozygotic cotwins.
