Welcome to the Lumibao Lab!

@ Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi

We study plants and microbes, either individually as an organism or their interactions in response to changes in their environment and the functional outcomes of these interactions to ecosystems. Our research spans a wide array of scales – from centuries to annual temporal scales, local to global spatial scales – and across different ecosystems – more recently, the coastal and wetland ecosystems. We use – omics approach and combine field, common garden and lab experiments.


TAMUCC has been the home of the Lumibao Lab since 2021



Graduate students: Our lab is expanding! We are looking for a PhD or MS student to begin in Fall 2023. If interested, send via email your 1) brief cover letter stating your general research interest and how it aligns with research in my lab, 2) CV to Dr. Candice Lumibao (candice[dot]lumibao[at]tamucc[dot]edu).

Undergraduate students: we are always looking for motivated and hard-working students to engage in our research in the lab and in the field. If interested contact Dr. Candice Lumibao.
