Guillaume Théroux-Rancourt, Ph. D., holds a bachelor’s degree in agronomy from Université Laval and a master’s degree and a Ph. D. in plant biology from the same university. Following his doctoral studies, he spent nearly eight years abroad at the University of California, Davis and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria, studying the link between plant structure and physiology. In addition to his expertise in plant biology and agronomy, he has experience in soil physics, irrigation and restoration of disturbed sites. He also has a strong background in programming software tools for analyzing 3D images of plants to gain a more in-depth understanding of their function. He is interested in the modification of environmental conditions to maximize plant productivity, both in terms of their growth and their yield in secondary metabolites.
