I graduated from the Umea University in Sweden with a major in Plant Molecular Biology in 2000. I completed my PhD in 2005 at Umea University, having worked with short term adaptation mechanisms in photosynthesis to changes in light environment. I moved on for a two-year Post Doc at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where I worked on plant-herbivore interactions using poplar as a model system. In 2008 I joined ANU continuing in the field of plant-herbivore interactions with the focus on Australian Myrtaceae.
