Background and Research Interests

A. Michelle Lawing, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of spatial sciences in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Texas A&M University. Dr. Lawing's research aims to better understand how species and communities respond to environmental change.  She develops new methodologies for the study of species response to environmental change and she integrates theories, methods, models, and data across paleontological, ecological, and evolutionary sciences. Lawing received a double major PhD (2012) in Geological Science and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at Indiana University, Bloomington. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Mathematical and Biological Synthesis in 2013 and joined Texas A&M University in 2014.
