Biography

I am an agroecologist working on multidisciplinary topics in farmland biodiversity conservation and sustainable food systems.


Research

My current work for EcoStack project is in the project's workpackage 5 "Plant Microbial Communities and Endophytes as in-Crop Ecosystem Service Providers". That means finding out whether some natural fungi can work as biological control to protect crops from pests and diseases.
