Areas of Expertise:
RNAi, Gene editing, transcriptomics, genomics, insect molecular biology and physiology, Biosafety
Fruitflies, stinkbugs, beetles, aphids, caterpillars
I am currently involved in projects spanning from fundamental to applied aspects in insect sciences. In my multidisciplinary research, I combine different modern techniques in biotechnology, such as Genome editing, RNA interference (RNAi), Bioinformatics, Phytochemical analysis, Genomics, Virus Engineering and Bacteria engineering to study and develop novel insect-specific strategies for pest control and sustainable integrated pest management (IPM) systems.
