Academic History


In 2012, I enrolled in the postgraduate program of “Sustainable Production Systems and Environment in Agriculture” at the Department of Agricultural Development, DUTh.

My  MSc thesis focuses on the indirect (through the host plant) interactions between a herbivore pest and its predator. During my MSc thesis I spent one month (July-August 2012) in the Institute of Biology, Freie Universität Berlin working under the supervision of Prof. Dr A. Steppuhn (within the context of IKYDA bilateral program, 2011-2014).
