Agential Behavior and Plasticity in Evolution
Evolution and organismal goal-directedness
Subaward Principal Investigator
Tobias Uller received his PhD from University of Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2004. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wollongong, Australia, he returned to Europe in 2007 to take up a Departmental Lectureship at the University of Oxford. In 2015, he moved to Lund University, Sweden, where he now is Professor of Evolutionary Biology. Uller has held several fellowships, including a Fulbright Fellowship at the University of Arizona, a Royal Society University Research Fellowship at Oxford, and a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship at Lund University. Uller’s research is characterized by an integrative approach – from molecular and developmental biology to ecology – guided by mathematical modelling and conceptual analysis. His projects span a range of topics, but most are designed to reveal how the development, physiology and behaviour of organisms influence their evolution.
