Mel Andrews studies cognition, evolution, and development at Tufts University, in the hopes of answering one really big question: how did entities with experience, agency, and knowledge, like you and me, come to exist out of inanimate material, like dirt? Mel is a published scholar, and has been invited to present at national and international conferences on this subject. Alongside her friend Maximus Thaler, Mel runs an online course on new topics in evolutionary theory.
