Samuel C Zeeman is Professor of Plant Biochemistry at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He is an expert in photosynthetic carbon metabolism, particularly the biosynthesis and degradation of leaf starch.  Together with his team, he uses biochemical, molecular genetic and plant physiological techniques to study starch biosynthesis and degradation in Arabidopsis, revealing the importance of the daily turnover of starch in leaves for plant growth.
