Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Italy & Australia 2014-2018
I enrolled in cotutelle PhD program with the University of Bologna
(Bologna, Italy) and Macquarie University
(Sydney, Australia). My course was in Agricultural Entomology. During my candidature, I implemented environmentally friendly pest control strategies and developed cold storage technologies for two dipterans: Exorista larvarum
, a tachinid fly playing an important role in biological control of lepidopteran pests, and Bactrocera tryoni
(the Queensland fruit fly or Q-fly), a pest posing a significant threat for the Australian horticulture industry. Would you like to learn more about my PhD? My thesis
is available for download!
