Dr. Devin Trudeau

Dr. Devin Trudeau is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biomolecular Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science. His work aims to improve photosynthesis and carbon fixation in plants by creating more energetically efficient synthetic metabolic pathways. He uses protein engineering to create new enzymes that catalyze these reactions at high rates. His work is an important step to understanding the limitations of natural plant metabolism, and how it may be engineered to make more sustainable and productive agriculture.
