Research Focus:

I am a researcher part of the Resistance Management team working closely with Ralf Nauen at Bayer CropScience. I am interested in the study of the detoxification mechanisms that operate in beneficials as well as in different pest species that develop insecticide resistance. In order to carry out this research we rely on different techniques for genetic profiling (microarrays, RNAseq, real-time PCR, etc.), as well as on gene silencing approaches such as RNA interference (RNAi technology, dsRNA).
