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 (France) focusing on the “nitrate transport in Arabidopsis thaliana”. After a fist Post-doc position on the “transport systems that underpin nitrogen efficient maize” at the University of Adelaide (Australia), Julie moved to the University of Sydney (Australia) where she currently hold a post-doctoral fellowship on the “grain nitrogen filling in Australian wheat cultivars”.


Research Areas:

  • Nitrogen use efficiency
  • Grain nitrogen filling
  • Nitrate uptake

Current N-related Projects:

  • Grain Nitrogen Filling in Two Contrasting Australian Wheat
