I finished a higher engineering degree in Agronomy with a project on holm oak seedlings response to drought at the University of Cordoba in 2013 September. In September 2014, I completed a master degree in Plant Protection, Production and Breeding with the project about nitrogen fertilization effects to frost response in olive tree. After this, I got a position to work on pine nuts proteomic profiles during 5 months. In 2015 September, I was awarded a FPU (Formation of University Teaching Staff) fellowship to study my Doctoral degree at the laboratory of Dr Jesus Jorrin-Novo, at University of Cordoba (Spain). In November 2019, I completed my PhD in Agricultural, Food, Forestry and Sustainable Rural Development Engineering with my project on warming temperature effects on olive tree. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham.

IsaI am a Biologist from Córdoba, Spain. I started working in fungal pathogenesis, with the fungus Fusarium oxysporum, during the Final Project Degree. Since then, I have continued working with different projects, during my studies in the Master in Biotechnology and as a professional in the same department: Molecular genetics of fungal pathogenesis, in Córdoba. I study the importance in fungal evolution changes to reach the capacity to infect different organisms furthermore some important pathways by which the fungus is able to infect the plant.
