He also contributed to undergraduate education and training programs. Dr Estavillo’s scientific and outreach work resulted in several papers in high-profile journals and was recognised by several awards. He is also ANU Visiting Fellow.
Dr Estavillo first completed undergraduate studies in plant physiology and molecular biology at the National University of Rosario, Argentina.
