Naïd Mubalegh is a PhD student in Philosophy of Science (Biology) at the University of Lisbon and the University Paris 1 Sorbonne, and currently a guest researcher at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the University of Oslo. She investigates the relationship between economic theories and the development of evolutionary theory. She is interested, among others, in understanding how certain, often strictly defined, concepts of rationality have been transferred from economics to evolutionary biology. How has an utilitarian research method been so successful in describing and explaining evolutionary processes and biodiversity? What is left outside by such a perspective, and what happens when scientific models from biology influence economics in return?
