The EspindoLab's goal is to connect ecology and evolution to understand the effect of the biotic and abiotic environment on individual species, species communities, and inter-species interactions (with a slight preference for pollination). To do this, we mix-and-match phylogenetic, geospatial, ecological, and experimental approaches.
Diversity is at the Core
In the same way that we know that biological communities are more resilient (are prettier) when there is a lot of diversity, we think that human groups are also more resilient, stronger, and more enriching when they are diverse.
Our lab is a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive place for all members of society, independently of their race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, or gender.
