Biographical and Bibliographical Data

Russell Scott Lande, born in Mississippi in 1951, is a US citizen and UK resident.

Since 2007 Royal Society Research Professor at Imperial College London at Silwood Park Campus, he also holds a Professor II (20% appointment) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim; he is a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

He received his PhD in 1976 from Harvard University and completed his Postdoctoral work from 1976 to 1978 at the University of Wisconsin. 
At the University of Chicago he became in 1978 an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biophysics and Theoretical Biology, in 1982 an Associate Professor in Ecology and Evolution and in 1989 Louis Block Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution. 

From 1990 to 1999 he held the position of Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Oregon and from 1999 to 2007 in the Department of Biology at the University of California, San Diego.
