We explore why and how biodiversity evolves. The lab uses microbes to follow adaptation and diversification happening in real time. We also explore the impact of these fundamental evolutionary processes on applications in human health and the environment. Follow this link to our research page to find out more.
We also contribute to broader discussions on science in society. Our activities span a wide range including training, policy, communications, and development. Click here to go 'beyond the bench'.

Science writer extraordinaire Jessa Gamble will be 'embedded' in our lab for the next two years blogging from the front lines of science and life as an early-career researcher. Her bi-weekly dispatches can be found at The Last Word on Nothing blog.
