Steve Kelly – CV
Steve is a Royal Society University Research Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Oxford. He is also Tutorial Fellow in Biological Sciences at The Queen’s College, Associate Director of the Oxford Centre for Plant Science Innovation and Editor in Chief of Biology Open. Steve began his research career as a molecular biologist and protein biochemist working on trypanosomes, after his PhD his post-doc and early independent career were predominantly computational studying the origin of life and developing novel computational tools for biological data analysis. Steve switched to working on plants in 2013 and now his laboratory studies the biology of photosynthesis in plants, answering questions about how it evolved, how it works, and how it is controlled. Steve’s group studies these questions with an overarching goal to help engineer the crop plants of the future, and enable sustainable food production to keep pace with global population increase.
