Malcolm is a member of the Future Food leadership team. His research focuses on the 'hidden half' of plants, exploring how roots grow, develop and adapt to their soil environment. Malcolm's team is translating knowledge about genes and signals regulating key root traits such as angle, depth and branching to re-engineer root architecture and improve crop yields.  Malcolm has been elected as a Fellow to the Royal Society and EMBO, and has held a Wolfson Research Fellowship.
