Bio:

After completing my PhD in Biology (plant physiology) at the University of Dayton in 1972, I did two years of post-doctoral research with Dick Dilley at Purdue University. My PhD focused on phloem transport and my postdoc research was on chloroplast membrane electron transport and bioenergetics. In January 1975, I joined the DuPont Company's Central Research and Development Department as a Research Scientist and established a research program on phloem physiology focused on the pathway and mechanism of sucrose loading in phloem. By the mid-late 1980s, I transitioned to managing research and technology programs at DuPont, which included basic research in yield enhancement and crop protection, biotechnology,and technology/business acquisitions and research alliances.
