@ chatham UNIVERSITY
Welcome to the Evolutionary Morphometrics Lab at Chatham University, where we are interested in the evolution of multivariate phenotypes.
Our general research focus in this lab is to push analytical boundaries associated with the high-dimensional data that accompany morphological descriptions of organisms. We do this by:
Developing new analytical methods (especially for phylogenetic comparative methods)
Developing software that incorporates cutting-edge advances in evolutionary biology
Using computing power rather than parametric theory to simulate patterns from processes
Doing these things to answer interesting evolutionary biology questions
Welcoming diverse perspectives from diverse people. (Our lab is an inclusive environment, where anyone should feel welcomed and respected.)
Interested in joining the lab? Prospective students should contact Dr. Michael Collyer at m dot collyer at chatham dot edu.
