The Pence Lab

Who are we?

We are a committed group of scholars, working to understand the philosophy, history, and ethics of science and technology. And we’re always looking for more collaborators! Feel free to or stop by the office at 110 Coates Hall! (Office hours are Monday, 11–1, and Tuesday, 1:30–4:30, or by appointment.)

What do we do?

Our research includes projects in the philosophy and history of evolutionary biology – especially the conceptual role and original introduction of chance and statistics in evolution – and the ethics of contemporary research in science and technology.
