Dr. Viviane Cordovez
Over the past 10 years, my research has focused on the impact of plant-associated microorganisms on plant growth and health by coupling culturomic, metabolomic and genomic approaches. Currently, I am leading a research project on the diversity and functions of yeasts associated with plant leaves. In particularly, we explore their spatial and temporal distribution, interactions, and genomes to get insight into their ecology as well as their potential for crop protection against pathogens. I am also involved in different international consortia investigating the impact of plant domestication on the microbial community composition and functions.
