Plant Canada 2024 Speakers

Dr. Matthew Reynolds

Matthew Reynolds ( leads Wheat Physiology at CIMMYT, developing breeding technologies for climate resilience and yield improvement. He has fostered global collaborations to tap expertise and emerging technologies in basic plant sciences for translation to breeding. Networks initiated include the International Wheat Yield Partnership, and the Heat and Drought Wheat Improvement Consortium , whose products provide breeders globally with unique pre-breeding material with new combinations of complex physiological traits and their haplotypes. He has published widely in crop physiology, genomics and pre-breeding and since 2018 is listed among top 1%, of world’s researchers in plant & animal science (Web of Science). He was recently invited to compile as wheat textbook as editor, which was published open access in 2022 He co-supervises PhD thesis projects through his links with Universities worldwide and has developed physiological manuals for use by national programs which have been translated into several languages.
