Research interest:

I am interested in the study of symbiotic relationships between organisms (mycoparasitism in particular). My master's study focuses on describing the possible role of new fungus specie (Escovopsis trichodermoides) associated with lower Attini ants colonies, using it as a study model to understand the evolution process of Escovopsis parasitism.
