Staff Profile:Dr Javier Miret


Researcher for HEAT Newton-Caldas project.

Areas of Interest:

Javier A Miret is a plant physiologist interested in the interaction of development and environment across the organ and whole plant scale to understand and exploit plant responses to impact yield and quality for food resilience. He is interested in unravelling these processes and their biotechnological potential through the combination of crop physiology, analytical biochemistry, gene expression analysis and modelling approaches.

Javier current main research project is a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary collaboration to study the heat and climate change tolerance of common bean in Colombia's germplasm and its potential adoption by vulnerable communities. The University of Reading contribution focuses on the detailed characterisation of heat and climate change tolerance mechanisms in Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean, frijol) using sophisticated controlled environment chambers delivering simulated future climate scenarios, integrating analytical data from several partners and contributing to the improvement of existing models to account for variation in responses in germplasm in future scenarios. (HEAT Newton-Caldas project with partners in CIAT, Lancaster University, Rothamsted Research, University of Leeds, and Scotland's Rural College).
