Assistant Professor

Research Interests and Accomplishments

Phil Weyman is an Assistant Professor in the Synthetic Biology and Bioenergy department at JCVI. He is involved in projects translating synthetic biology techniques to cyanobacteria. His current work focuses on expression of hydrogenases in cyanobacteria to develop strains with improved hydrogen production capability.

Before coming to JCVI, Phil was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Missouri — St. Louis where he studied hydrogen production in nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria. Phil earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis in Plant Pathology.
