Research Interests
Applied microbiology with special attention to entomopathogenic fungi for insect control.

Research focuses on insect pathology, Entomophthorales-caused epizootics, pathogen-host interactions, and development of hyphomycetes-based mycoinsecticides against sucking insects. Biochemistry and genetic engineering of insect fungi are also investigated.
