Christophe Heintz is working on the role of adaptive cognition in shaping economic behavior, cultural evolution, and the history of science. Scientific practices and economic choices have traditionally been described as rational. Christophe attempts to describe them as resulting from both environmental/contextual and psychological causal factors, with a focus on evolved cognition.

Christophe Heintz is leading the research group ACE (Adaptive Cognition and Economics). He studied mathematics and philosophy at the universities of Paris (Sorbonne and Diderot) and Cambridge. He worked for his Ph.D. at the Institut Jean Nicod, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. Before coming to CEU, he was a research fellow at the KLI for Evolution and Cognition Research in Vienna.
