From the School of Computer Science and Department of Psychology at McGill University, I marvel at the world through algorithmic lenses. My specific interests are in quantum computing, evolutionary game theory, modern evolutionary synthesis, and theoretical cognitive science. Previously I was at the Institute for Quantum Computing and Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo and a visitor to the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore.

comment Macroevolution vs. microevolution
@dd3 no problem! It was a fun question and got me to think more carefully about the micro/macro distinction and actually write something down. I might end up making a blog post out of this later, so thanks for that! :D

comment Is local equilibrium a reasonable assumption for evolutionary processes?
I looked through Bell's publications, and I can't see a paper that suggests that he has been looking at this. Can you give an example?

comment Lineage selection in plasmid evolution
Thanks! So he is using lineage in the genetic sense as described by Wikipedia?

comment Structure of fitness landscapes in the NK model
@WYSIWYG Thanks! Coincidently I just wrote an answer where the second part talks about some basic references on EGT. Alternatively, take a look around my blog or just email me at lastname<dot>firstname<at>gmail<dot>com
