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.
Dr. Christina Balentine, co-advised by Dr. Melissa Kemp and Dr. Deborah Bolnick (UConn), successfully defended her dissertation! We are so proud of you Christina!!
In our lab, we value and respect all people and the diversity that each person contributes.
