Sean Carroll


Sean Carroll explores the origin of novelty – one of the central questions of evolutionary biology. An award-winning documentary filmmaker, his acclaimed books include “The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Life Works and Why It Matters, and  Remarkable Creatures: Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origins of Species“, which was a finalist for the National Book Award.

His groundbreaking book, Endless Forms Most Beautiful, was published in 2005 to rave reviews (“Carroll emerges as the new, user-friendly public face of evolutionary science in the process” — US News & World) and his book Making of the Fittest (winner of the 2007 Phi Beta Kappa Science Book Award) enhanced his reputation as one of our most exciting scientists.

A charismatic speaker, Carroll is Professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Wisconsin, the vice president for science education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
