I am interested in the study of the interaction between organisms and their environment for the regulation of different ecosystem processes. My areas of interest are nematode communities, soil ecology and soil biodiversity. My previous professional work has been mainly focused in the study of nematodes. I earned a Degree in Biology from the Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata (Argentina) working with Meloidogyne in potato cultivars at INTA and later a M.Sc. in Plant Pathology at CSU working with Ditylenchus Dipsaci and Aphelenchoides Ritzema-bosi in alfalfa. Before joining Diana Wall’s group as Lab Manager, I worked as head nematologist/pathologist at a private plant disease diagnostic laboratory.
