Biographical details

Julie holds a MSc in Plant Development and Cell Biology from the University of Paris XI Orsay, France, and a PhD in Plant Science from AgroParisTech, Paris, France.

During her PhD, she studied the transport of nitrate in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

Research interests

Julie’s research is focusing on nitrogen in plants.

Her main research project aim to decipher the loading of wheat grain. A major problem for Australian wheat farmers is to combine high yield with high grain protein content. A better understanding of wheat grain filling during development at qualitative and quantitative levels is therefore needed.

Her other research interests include maize and Arabidopsisand the physiology of nitrogen transport in plant.

Teaching and supervision

Julie is involved in the supervision of post-graduate and PhD students as part of Brent Kaiser’s group but also in the CCWF.
