Welcome to the Funk Lab

We strive to understand the evolutionary and ecological mechanisms that generate and maintain biological diversity using population genomics, experimental manipulations, and field studies. Our goal is to not only test basic evolutionary and ecological theory, but also directly inform policy and management decisions that will ultimately determine the fate of biodiversity.

Recent lab alumnus, Brian Gill, has accepted a position as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute for Environment and Society at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Together with Principal Investigator Tyler Kartzinel, Brian will utilize cutting-edge molecular tools to investigate the ecology and evolutionary biology of animals living on African Savannas. Research will focus on food webs, community assembly and disassembly, the implications of these basic research areas for conservation, and will take place at Brown University and the Mpala Research Centre in Kenya.
