Ecology, genetics and evolution researchers aim to understand the natural world and the intricate relationships between organisms and their environment. 

Climate change, invasive species and antibiotic resistance are just a few examples of the pressing issues that our researchers grapple with.

To address these challenges, we work to develop techniques for monitoring and managing ecosystems, identify genetic traits that are important for survival, and understand the processes that drive evolutionary change. 

We also collaborate with partners across computer science, engineering and the social sciences to develop tools and methods for studying complex ecological systems.

Research in ecology, genetics and evolution has the potential to create significant impact, from improving our understanding of biodiversity to developing new treatments for disease and addressing the challenges of climate change.
