    Shawn McGuire

    Shawn McGuirePosition: Senior Lecturer
    Working at: School of International Development, UEA
    Work Address: School of International Development, University of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ
    Phone: +441603593375
    Personal Website: http://www.uea.ac.uk/international-development/People/Academic/mcguire

    Research Activities: I focus on the interface between local genetic resource managers and formal research institutions, particularly around crop breeding and seed supply. Key areas here include studying farmer knowledge and practice in plant genetic resource management, the social norms and local institutions that shape access, and how policy narratives and institutions affect reforms in R&D. This has been applied to development interventions such as participatory plant breeding (PPB) and humanitarian actions, e.g. emergency seed relief.

    Recent work includes

    1. developing Seed System Security Assessments, along with Louise Sperling, to help aid and development practitioners better understand informal seed systems, and
    2. analysing networks of seed exchange across countries, using network analysis and ethnographic tools, and 3) exploring barriers to ‘capacity development’ in molecular plant breeding in Southern NARIs.

    Phone: +1-530-752-7743
    Personal Website: http://www.plantsciences.ucdavis.edu/gepts/geptslab.htm
    Research Activities: My research focuses primarily on the biodiversity of Phaseolus beans and secondarily on Mesoamerican plant domesticates. I am interested in investigating the evolutionary factors, including domestication, affecting the levels and distribution of genetic diversity. My program is active across the spectrum from field collection to genomics. I also apply our findings to an active breeding program in common bean, lima bean, and chickpeas (the latter, a Near Eastern domesticate!).
