My research focuses on using mutualistic bacteria from EPNs to control agricultural pests, mainly insects and plant-parasitic nematodes. Hence, I am interested in how bacteria can be engineered to maximize their biocidal qualities and use, either isolated or together with their EPN hosts. For this, I am using multidisciplinary approaches to understand better these bacteria as a biocontrol agent and contribute to minimizing synthetic chemical pesticide dependence.
