Welcome to The Pearse Lab

How do species evolve? How do species interact with their environment? In the Pearse lab we answer these two fundamental questions at the same time, using species’ evolutionary history and functional traits to understand what structures ecological communities. To do so, we develop new statistical and computational tools to answer these age-old questions using cutting-edge techniques.

Interested in joining the lab? We have fully-funded post-doc and PhD student positions available, which we are about to start advertising. Contact Will Pearse for more details!
