The Kemp Lab studies how biodiversity is shaped by global change phenomena through time and across space.
We integrate paleobiology with ecology, evolution, and conservation to understand extinction, diversification, and colonization dynamics in vertebrate systems.
By studying the past, we understand the present, and prepare for a better future.
The Kemp lab hosted two InSTinCT Scholars this summer–Autumn Magnuson and Miryana Rafael–who made important contributions to our work on the ancient herpetofauna of central Texas. We will miss you both!
In our lab, we value and respect all people and the diversity that each person contributes.
