I am currently enrolled in the ‘Philosophy, Science, and Values’ PhD programme. My thesis topic is on the concept of biological altruism and its history and use within eusociality research. My PhD research is supported by an FPI grant (ref. FFI2014-52173-P) from the Minesterio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades (MINECO) and the EU.
