EEB Welcomes New Core Faculty Member Thomas Chappell

Thomas Chappell is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in the
Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology at Texas A&M.  He has
longstanding interests in plants, diseases, and strategy.

Chappell received his Ph.D. in Biology from Duke University, and during
his graduate training in evolutionary genetics, developed a focus on
antagonistic coevolution between plants and their enemies.  During
postdoctoral work in entomology at NC State University, he studied
several insect-vectored plant pathosystems and implemented
software-based decision support tools for agricultural applications.

Today, the Chappell Lab uses modeling and analysis to understand and manage plant pathosystems, and
enjoys collaboration with entomologists studying pests and vectors.
Chappell takes an evolutionary ecology approach to many questions, and
has particular interest in advancing theory and practice concerning
evolution of resistance to agrochemicals.
