Steve Kelly – CV
Steve is a Royal Society University Research Fellow and Professor of Plant Science in the Department of Biology at the University of Oxford. He is also Tutorial Fellow in Biological Sciences at The Queen’s College, and co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Wild Bioscience Ltd. Steve began his research career as a molecular biologist and protein biochemist. After his PhD, he spent his post-doc and early independent career developing novel computational tools for biological data analysis. Steve’s group combines molecular, biochemical, and computational approaches to study the biology of photosynthesis in plants. They aim to answer key questions about how it evolved, how it works, and how it is controlled. Our group studies these questions to help enhance the yield of crop plants, and enable people to produce more food from less land.
