Chung-Chi (Alex) Wu

Chung-Chi (Alex) obtained Bachelor degree in Science (Mathematics/Chemistry) at the University of Queensland before completing honours in developing a mathematical model of starch biosynthetic pathway (Uni of Queensland) and a PhD in further advancing the development of models for grain starch in major crops and leaf starch.

Chung-Chi (Alex) is currently a research fellow in the Centre to conduct research on optimising bioengineering and breeding strategies for increasing photosynthesis and growth in major crops. His research underpins the development of mathematical models linking leaf function and field performance of crops that enable rapid and efficient identification of beneficial traits which will be tested in field trials.
