Welcome to the Funk Lab

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

She received this for many reasons, chief among them her dedication to making sure that ALL students she teaches have equal access to learning from a top-notch instructor. Another thing that has set Maybellene’s teaching apart is her drive to continually gain new teaching skills and perspectives. Maybellene is in the final push to finish her PhD.
