Research Interests

 

I am mainly interested by biocontrol strategies against pathogenic fungi and by bacterial-fungal interactions (BFI). My main interest is to play with the environment with the addition of beneficial microbes, in order to make it improper for fungal growth and thus protecting the host plant. I am also interested in knowing more about fungal pathogenicity and microbial metabolisms, as they are key elements in biocontrol strategies development.
