Ana Martin Camargo

Post-Doctoral Researcher

I am a biologist specialized on plant-insect interactions. My main interest lies in how a better understanding of these interactions can be used to develop safer, more sustainable and environmentally-friendly methods for the control of arthropod pests and noxious and invasive weeds. My current research focuses on how we can harness plant-microbe-insect interactions for the control of invasive weeds.
