Welcome to the Post Lab. We study complex food web structure and dynamics, interactions between ecology and evolution, conservation and management of aquatic resources, climate change, and the role of mobile consumers in linking ecosystems. We work primarily in aquatic systems, but we also study interactions and processes that link aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are core values of the Post Lab. We belive that the diversity of ideas, perspectives, and experiences are foundations of excelence. We afirm that all individuals are respected and welcome in the Post Lab regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or any other identities. We strive to cultivate a community built upon mentorship, encoragement, tolerance, and mutual respect, therby creating a welcoming environment and an opportunity for all members of the lab to reach their full potentil.
