Experience: Alejandro studied forestry and environmental engineering at Technical University of Madrid (Spain). There he worked as a research assistant at the Department of Plant and Forest Pathology, working as a. He extended his interest in microbiology and plant pathology with the completion of his Master’s thesis on functional and taxonomical characterization of fungal endophytes of forest trees. Afterwards, he studied a Master of Sciences & Engineering in Sustainable Biotechnology at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, with a specialization in bioprocesses, fermentation and microbial production. He is currently studying a doctoral degree in the field of bacterial-fungal-plant tripartite interactions: genome analysis, microbial production, plant vigor and biocontrol of pathogens.
