Research Interests

       My research is focusing on the understanding of the Microbiome profile in given phytopathological environments by means of correlation-based assays, utilizing the information to develop microbial screening technique, and ultimately develop biological control strategies for plant diseases management for field scales applications. Besides the importance in fundamental sciences, these research areas are closely related to the understanding of microbial ecological systems, and are crucial for the development of plant protection applications such as disease diagnostic and biological controls against specific plant diseases.
