Following his PhD in plant genetics at the University of Warwick, Kieron has gained over 10 years’ experience of biological research in both an academic and industrial setting; most recently with Advanced Technologies Cambridge Ltd., including its subsequent merger into British American Tobacco. Over this time he has used genetic, genomic, transcriptomic, metabolomic and other systems approaches to investigate the regulation of physiological and biochemical traits in plants to support both fundamental understanding and trait development.
