Marco's current research focuses on a variety of issues in the philosophy of biology and the philosophy of science.
Works in preparation include an essay developing a novel account of dispositional properties, one investigating non-reductive models of scientific unification, and one exploring the relationship between ecology and molecular biology.
In addition, Marco is working on two collaborative research projects. The first one, which lies at the intersection of metaphysics and the philosophy of science, draws some lessons from developmental biology for philosophical notions of natural kinds. The second one explores the concept of elegance in the biomedical sciences.
In summer 2013, Marco will be visiting the graduate program in the Foundation of the Life Sciences at the European School of Molecular Medicine, University of Milan.
