Joined in July 2005

Jean-Marcel’s scientific background is in plant physiology and genetics, with main research interest being understanding the genetic basis and underlying physiological and metabolic pathways that influence plant performance under abiotic stress– particularly drought – as well as innovations in molecular breeding.

He holds a PhD in Plant Physiology from Lausanne University, Switzerland, and has cumulative experience in agriculture biotechnology and plant breeding, project and finance management and policy formulation, as well as leadership skills for dispersed global R&D teams.

Jean-Marcel has a particular interest in promoting modern breeding methods to hasten crop improvement in the developing world. He believes in true partnership and solid capacity building to overcome some of the bottlenecks in R4D, with the developing-country partners as key actors and leaders in the research arena.

Prior to becoming GCP Director in 2005, Jean-Marcel worked at CIMMYT, Mexico, where he held positions of increasing responsibility, rising to Deputy Director of the Genetic Resources Programme in 2003 and Biotechnology Group Leader in 2004.
