Research interest:

My research seeks to better understand the nature of mutualistic interaction between the fungus cultivated by attine ants and the parasitic fungus Escovopsis. We intend to evaluate compounds produced by the mutualistic fungus responsible for low specificity found between parasite strains and the cultivated fungus.
