Bio

Davide is from Emilia Romagna, a region in Northern Italy where he studied Agricultural Sciences. He then obtained a PhD degree in Crop Sciences at the University of Milan (2008) before leaving Italy for Germany, to take a post-doctoral position at the Max Planck Institute of Cologne. In 2013 he established his own research group at the University of Dundee thanks to the support of a Royal Society of Edinburgh / Scottish Government Personal Research Fellowship. His research focuses on understanding, at a molecular level, the relationships between plants and the microbial communities proliferating at the root-soil interface, the plant microbiota, and on how these relationships can be exploited to enhance sustainable crop production.
