Richard Jeannotte

Ph. D.

Co-Director — Innovation and Technology Transfer — Mycotechnologies

Richard Jeannotte holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and a master’s degree in chemistry from Université du Québec à Montréal as well as a doctorate in natural resources sciences (soil science) from McGill University. During his doctoral studies, he studied the microbial dynamics of soils used to cultivate soy plants (Glycine max) infected with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (sclerotic rot disease). Both his postdoctoral fellow at Kansas State University (2005-2011) and his research positions at the University of California — Davis (2011-2017) were focused on metabolomics and lipidomics, which allowed him to gain a great expertise. Returning to Canada, he worked as a specialist and supervisor at the Cascades Research and Development Centre (2017-2019). Richard now has over 20 years of experience in research and innovation from a sustainable development perspective, specifically in the fields of natural resources (soils, plants), sustainable agriculture, food security, recovery of residual organic materials and recycling. Richard joined Biopterre in January 2020.
