Arunas L Radzvilavicius

I am a theoretical biologist at University College London, where I study the origin and early evolution of complex life, sex and sexes. At the core of my research is the ancient symbiosis between bacteria and archaea that gave rise to mitochondria and modern eukaryotes. My long-term goal is to explain why the life on Earth is the way it is and also offer predictions on the possible signatures of extraterrestrial life.

I earned my first degree in Theoretical Physics, MRes in Modeling Biological Complexity and a doctorate in Evolutionary Biology. I currently work with professors Andrew Pomiankowski and Nick Lane of UCL and collaborate closely with professor Neil Blackstone of Northern Illinois University.
