Biographical details

Les Copeland is an agricultural biochemist with interests at the interface between food science and human nutrition. He joined the academic staff in 1974 after completing his undergraduate and postgraduate studies in the University of Sydney and postdoctoral research in the USA. Les is a member of the Research Advisory Committee of the Australian Farm Institute, Foundation Editor of the open access journal Agriculture, President of the University of Sydney Association of Professors, and a Research Integrity Advisor of the University of Sydney. He is a former Head of Department and Faculty Dean, a Fulbright Alumnus, and he was the Foundation President of the Australian Council of Deans of Agriculture. Les has extensive experience in international projects and capacity building.

Research interests

Les Copeland's research is concerned with the chemistry and biochemistry of foods and food plants, in the main themes areas of structure and function of food starches, genotype by growth environment effects on the fitness-for-purpose and nutritional value of agricultural products, and the origins of the human diet. His research has resulted in over 100 peer-reviewed publications.
