Tom Lapen (BS Geology, 1995)

Geology Professor in Houston, Texas

I am a professor of geology in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Houston; I also serve as associate department chair and am an elected fellow of the Geological Society of America.

I run an isotope geochemistry and chronology lab and have several funded research projects that address problems in terrestrial and extraterrestrial systems. We are always looking for good graduate students!

Having conducted independent research projects as an undergraduate student at CWU prepared me well for academia; I am very grateful for that transformative experience.
