Alison McConwell

Alison K. McConwell is a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University. Her research examines the implications of evolutionary contingency for different topics in philosophy of biology and medicine. In one project, she argues that contingency produces a plurality of individuals in selection, as well as types of major events in evolution. In another project concerning the nature of cancer, she investigates the structural differences among cancer types and how medical interventions inform cancer classificatory practices.
