Author L. Bich
Leonardo Bich is associate researcher of the Biology of Cognition Lab at the Faculty of Sciences of the Universidad de Chile. His research mainly focuses on theoretical and philosophical issues in Biology such as autonomy, organization, minimal cognition, and control and regulation, and on the epistemology of complex systems and of synthetic biology. His research is currently supported by a grant from the CONICYT, Chile (FONDECYT Regular 1150052).
