I am originally from Argentina where I got my Bachelor’s degree in Agronomic Engineering at UNNOBA. During my last two years of undergrad and after graduation I worked in the private industry for important companies like Bayer and Corteva.
I came to Clemson University in the fall of 2022 to start my PhD in Plant and Environmental Sciences under Dr. Richard Boyles. My research project focuses on Plant Breeding and Genetics. Currently, I am working on sorghum grain antimicrobial metabolites for poultry feed.
