The lab of Emma Goldberg is based in the department of Ecology, Evolution & Behavior at the University of Minnesota. Our research interests center around biogeography and plant mating systems, mostly through the lens of evolutionary theory and phylogenetic comparative methods. Please see the information on opportunities if you are interested in joining the lab.

And we are not alone!

  • Local collaborators: There is a great community here for evolutionary biology generally, and for plant evolution specifically. Here are the labs in EEB and labs in PMB.
  • Theory Under Construction: We host weekly discussions about in-progress work on mathematical modeling in biology. All are welcome to attend, participate, and receive feedback on ongoing projects.
  • Biological Theory Alliance: BioTA brings together researchers from across the university who use mathematical and conceptual modeling to understand biology.


We’re in the Ecology Building on the St Paul campus. [Ecology map]
