Research Project: Realizing Increased Photosynthetic Efficiency (RIPE) 

Rebecca (Becky) Slattery is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois. Her research involves improving the efficiency of photosynthesis within crop canopies for enhanced crop production. For the RIPE project, she will be analyzing changes in global cropland use and how that may influence future regional crop production needs. Rebecca earned her bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and went on to earn her doctorate in plant biology from Illinois. Her work has been published in many peer-reviewed journals, including Plant Physiology and Journal of Experimental Botany.









The Ort Lab is supported by many public and private partnerships, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research, the UK Government's Department for International Development, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy.
