Hello! Welcome to the lab website of Dr. Stephen Q. Dornbos, Associate Professor of Geosciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Our lab research centers on the evolutionary paleoecology of early animals during the Ediacaran–Cambrian biodiversification event and the geobiology of microbial structures in siliciclastic and carbonate rocks.
