Dr Evan Ellison is a USA National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Research Fellow and joined the University of Cambridge Department of Plant Sciences in 2022. Originally from a corn and soybean farm in Minnesota, USA, he received his BS from North Dakota State University studying cereal grain RNA viruses. Dr Ellison completed his PhD at the University of Minnesota in Dan Voytas' group where he developed RNA viral vectors as delivery constructs for tissue-culture free gene editing along with several other projects relating to plant synthetic biology and vector platform development. Currently, he is working as a part of Giles Oldroyd's group at the Crop Science Centre to bring high-throughput gene editing technologies to the centre and using those technologies to engineer improved nutrient acquisition.
