I have a M. Sc. in Tropical Horticulture and a Ph. D. in Natural Resource Management by the Institute of Ecology (INECOL A. C.) from Xalapa, Mexico. My research area is the Applied Mycology. Principally, I am studying: 1) the biological control of insect-pest and plant diseases in horticultural crops; 2) the fungal interactions as a strategy to over production of fungal enzymes (laccase, LiP and MnP) and hidrogen peroxide to apply in contaminated soils with pesticides for its bioremediation; and 3) the solubilization of inorganic phosphates by soil borne micromycetes in stressed environments by heavy metals, pesticides and hydrocarbons.
