The Team

We are a team made up of research biologists, chemists and a senior research commercialisation manager from the University of Bristol, and a biotechnology businessman and founder of AgriTecKnowledge.

Our team works on carbon nanodots: carbon-based nanoparticles which are used to genetically engineer plant species, and has great potential to be a game-changing technology across scientific and commercial fields. Current work has focused on crop plant species, and previous work has found that the method is successful with recalcitrant plant species.

Agriculture is facing a huge shift in its approach due to climate change and food security, and we aim to use our technology to tackle these head on.
