Current professionCurrent professional activities type:ResearchI'm finishing my master thesis called "Evaluation of bacteria belonging to national collections for their ability to act on the phyto-availability of phosphorus: detection, mechanisms involved and potential use as biofertilizers", and i also participe in research projects of my institute, called: "Basis for the development of a biofertilizer of microbial origin that acts on the phytoavailability of phosphorus" and "Development of inoculants for mobilization of phosphorus as an input in the agricultural production".
