In the Bonachela Lab, we study how ecology and evolution, and interactions between them, shape the emergent response of individuals, populations, and communities to environmental change. We are interested in a wide range of complex biological systems and therefore study a variety of responses, from physiological acclimation to spatio-temporal patterns.

We work with theoreticians and empiricists in order to develop and test theories of biological organization across space and time. Thanks to our diverse background, we like to look at biological problems from different perspectives. To this end, we use a multidisciplinary approach that combines biology, mathematics, physics, and computational methods in order to answer the questions under scrutiny.
