Emmanuel González Escobar| | Lancaster University
Emmanuel González Escobar was a research associate at the Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University. Within his research, he applied biochemical methods to study the genetic variation of Rubisco—the central enzyme in photosynthesis—in cowpea. For the RIPE project, he aimed to characterize the genetic diversity of Rubisco across cowpea cultivars and identify cowpea accessions whose photosynthetic productivity is not limited by the activation speed of Rubisco in sun-shade transitions. Emmanuel earned his bachelor's degree in plant and animal sciences from Queen Mary, University of London. He went on to earn his doctorate in plant and animal sciences from the University of Sheffield. His work is published in Plant, Cell, and Environment. Emmanuel has gone on to lead the Research Strategy and Innovation segment as Chairman at Seanasol Research, CIC.
