Daniel Spalink is EEB’s newest Core Faculty member and an Assistant Professor of Plant Systematics in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Texas A&M University and Director of the S.M. Tracy Herbarium (TAES).

Daniel received his Ph.D. from the Department of Botany at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he studied the ecological and biogeographical diversification of the sedge family, Cyperaceae. He then conducted a postdoc at UW-Madison, where he studied the biogeography and diversification of the orchid family (Orchidaceae) and the spatial structure of phylogenetic diversity in the Wisconsin flora. Before joining the faculty at Texas A&M University, Daniel conducted a second postdoc at the University of Utah, where he studied the genomic structure of phylogenetic discordance in the pepper tribe, Capsiceae.
