Chris Adami is a theoretical physicist working at the intersection of physics and life sciences. He is a computational biologist with a focus on Darwinian evolution, studying how biological systems evolve from the simplest molecules to the most complex structures such as the human brain. In addition, he conducts research into black holes, investigating the foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum information theory.
