Marta Alexandra Nunes da Silva

Biologist by training, I started my PhD in Agronomical Sciences in 2015 in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto, focusing in understanding the physiological and molecular mechanisms behind kiwifruit plants tolerance/susceptibility to the bacterial canker, and in the development of cultural management techniques that could increase plants resistance to the disease. My research interests include the study of plant-pathogens interactions and plant nutrition.
