Research in Developmental Biology and Plant Physiology - (1964-1985)

From 1964 to 1974, I worked in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge, at first as a graduate student, then as a Research Fellow of Clare College Cambridge and as a Research Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1968, and again in 1971, I did research on tropical plants in Malaysia, based in the Botany Department of the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, and also at the Rubber Research Institute of Malaya. From 1974 to 1985, I worked at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad, India, on the physiology of tropical legume crops, first as Principal Plant Physiologist, and later as Consultant Physiologist.
