Kevin’s PhD research involved the development of new, highly precise gene editing technology. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, he now plans to work on the rapid generation and identification of new crop variants that will be better suited to cope with our changing climate. Kevin aims to develop a research pipeline that can identify variants with traits that will improve global food security.
