For her postdoctoral work she first joined the INRA French National Institute for Agricultural Research in Versailles, France and after her return to Australia, The University of Queensland, where she holds a Professorship (since 2012). Christine’s research focuses on understanding the role of plant hormones in the regulation and coordination of plant development. She has a particular research interest in shoot architecture as a variable trait that is important for crop production and horticulture. Her ground-breaking research has contributed to the discovery of the novel plant hormone strigolactone that is involved in plant processes including nutrient uptake, shoot branching, adventitious rooting, secondary growth and root development. Christine has received extensive recognition for her achievements in plant biology, including a 2010 ARC Future Fellowship and a 2018 ARC Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship. She is a Highly cited researcher, has been named a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2015 and is the past President of the International Plant Growth Substances Association.
