He is Immediate Past President of the European Plan Science Organisation (EPSO), and current co-chair of its Biotech Working Group. His group pursues the basis of drought resilience and other sustainability traits in barley, faba bean, and oat, with interests also in seed quality traits, and develops tools for precision breeding. His group also applies genetics, genomics and cell biology to understand the processes of genome dynamics. They play a central role in the faba bean and oat pan-genome projects, as they did earlier for the Brachypodium and barley reference genomes, having contributed to five others.
