Gonzalo Giribet's primary research focuses on the evolution and biogeography of invertebrate animals. In the lab, he uses genomic, transcriptomic, and morphological data from living and extinct animals to better understand invertebrate evolution. A large body of his work focuses on arthropods and on mollusks, but he also investigates many other groups of invertebrates, including velvet onychophorans, nemerteans, platyhelminths, annelids, and the so-called “minor phyla”. Current NSF-funded projects include Collaborative Research: The Opiliones of New Zealand: Revisionary synthesis and application of species delimitation for testing biogeographic hypotheses
