Yue (Julian) Qu made the journey from China to Australia in 2009, to finish his undergraduate degree (BBiotech) at the University of Newcastle, Australia. After that, he did his 2 years Masters studies (MBiotech) at the University of Adelaide. In 2013, he was awarded Faculty of Sciences Outstanding Academic Achievement Award and Australian Centre Plant Functional Genomics Prize. In 2014, he started his PhD research following up his Master’s work on soybean salinity tolerance in Prof Matt Gilliham’s lab at the Waite Campus, the University of Adelaide, sponsored by the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology. Julian completed his PhD with commendation at the end of 2017 and continued to work as a postdoctoral research associate with PEB.
