Associate Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Southampton

Dr Mark Chapman is an Associate Professor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and his research focuses on working out what genes do.

He works with a range of plants (and some animals) and carries out detailed genetic and genomic investigations comparing populations or species.

His research identifies the genes that are important for adaptation, speciation and domestication; therefore it is important for the fields of evolutionary biology, genomics and mitigating climate change.
