Today on Grassroots Marketing we are live at USCC Expo in Miami Florida, and we are speaking to Rebecca Knight, PhD, Technical Marketing Director for BIOS Lighting. “Rebecca is a former chemical/process engineer and R&D scientist with a Ph.D. in Plant Biology. During her dissertation, she studied the effects of environmental stimuli on photosynthetic gene expression and developed a passion for LEDs and their utilization in biological sciences.
She is passionate about vertical farming, horticultural LEDs, plant secondary metabolites, and sustainable food production. As the Technical Marketing Director she is focused on finding creative ways to engage and educate the vertical farming, greenhouse, and indoor agricultural communities about photobiology. She also works closely with the engineers and scientists that make up BIOS Lighting and provides integration and cultivation expertise during regular customer site visits.
