Su Yin Phua


Su Yin Phua graduated from the Australian National University (ANU) in 2010 with a Bachelor of Biotechnology (Honours) and in 2016 with a PhD in Plant Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Barry Pogson and Dr. Gonzalo Estavillo. After submitting her PhD thesis, she worked as laboratory manager / senior technical officer for the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology, ANU. She then continued her research at the ANU, which mainly focused on investigating the role of a chloroplast retrograde signal [3’-phosphoadenosine-5’-phosphate (PAP)] in regulating plant growth and stress tolerance. She is currently identifying new molecular players in reactive oxygen species (ROS) signalling pathway in Prof. Frank Van Breusegem’s group, with the aim of further unravelling the signalling and response mechanisms behind the regulation of plant growth and stress tolerance.
