Johannes Kromdijk

Head of the Environmental Plant Physiology group

Johannes Kromdijk


Johannes obtained his BSc and MSc in Plant Sciences at Wageningen University (NL). In 2007 he was awarded the Alexander James Keith PhD studentship to work with Proffessor Howard Griffiths at the University of Cambridge (UK), where he studied the effects of light limitation on the efficiency of the carbon concentrating mechanism in C4 photosynthesis. After finishing his PhD, he worked as a research scientist in Wageningen (NL) and at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology (University of Illinois, USA) before returning to Cambridge. He was the 2020 SEB President’s medal recipient (plant section) and currently holds a UKRI-Future Leaders Fellowship. His research group employs a range of techniques from ecophysiology, mathematical modelling, biotechnology and genetic engineering to study plant physiology at the nexus of basic understanding of plant function and applications to improve sustainability and food security.
