ABOUT THE LAB
Welcome to the website for the Powell Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at the George Washington University. We work on research questions at the interface of evolutionary ecology and community ecology. We use ants to tackle these questions. We are particularly interested in the intimately connected questions of how ecological interactions have shaped trait diversification, and how species traits influence the assembly of contemporary communities. For more information, please follow the links above and read the news below. If you have further questions about our work, or want to know about opportunities to join us, please get in touch.
