I have done research on ethnobotany, and specifically on economic botany and sustainable use of plant resources. In my research, we test both single and mixtures of chemically modified essential oils against the most common haematophagous arthropods. I finished my MSc research in April 2016.

I am currently a master student in Evolutionary Biology with a background in plant biology, ethnobotany and ecology. My bachelor thesis has been focused on the hazard of plant intake of xenobiotics. During my master programme I have carried out a research training in ethnobotany and now my research is still based on ethnobotany but with an additional interest in economic botany and sustainable use of plant resources. Essentially, we are testing both single and mixtures of chemically modified essential oils against the most common haematophagous arthropods. I would like to combine my background with a sustainable development perspective, in fact, I have applied for a course called Sustainable Development: Project Management and Communication.
