I'm a systems biologist by training, this means I build mathematical models then validate these models with experiments. My PhD was spent researching how photosynthesis in micro-algae was regulated as a result of environmental stress. I am now researching Miscanthus and performing bioinformatic analysis to predict regions of the genome that account for drought tolerance.Chapman S.P., Paget C. M., Johnson G.N., Schwartz J-M.
