Ana Carolina Fernandes Silva

Undergraduate student in agronomy at the Universidade Federal de Viçosa (UFV). Currently, I have been doing research on the risk assessment of plant-based pesticides, integrated pest management and biological control. More especially, we are interested on finding molecules that display higher target selectivity and study their toxicological interactions with non-target organisms (e.g., pollinators and natural enemies). I have experience in predatory insect rearing (i.e., lady beetles and green lacewings) and toxicological assays.
