Dr. Kevin Begcy
Assistant Professor, Plant Biochemistry and Physiology
Dr. Begcy is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Horticulture at the University of Florida. Dr. Begcy received his Ph.D. in Plant Breeding and Genetics from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. His research group focuses on understanding plant developmental responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. He uses molecular, biochemical, physiological and genomics/computational tools to elucidate mechanisms used by plants to improve resilience under detrimental conditions. His overall research goal is to elucidate novel pathways and mechanisms that could be used to improve crop performance under unfavorable environmental conditions.
