studied biology at McGill University, Canada, and received his Ph.D. in 1989 for work on the molecular biology of retroviruses with Prof. P. Jolicoeur. He then started postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Prof. C. Somerville on the genetic engineering of polyhydroxybutyrate production in plants. His research interests include the alteration of plant metabolism for the production of polyhydroxyalkanoates and the study of genes involved in mineral uptake in plants.
