Sabrina Helena da Cruz Araujo

Biochemist and master in plant physiology at Universidade Federal de Viçosa (UFV) and PhD in plant physiology and biochemistry at Escola Superior de Agricultura “Luiz de Queiroz” (ESALQ/USP). During my undergraduate and graduate studies I developed research on plant abiotic stressors (e.g., hydric stress) caused by heavy metals, tomato apical stunt as well as research on the development of sugarcane. I have an extensive background on the use of molecular biology, oxidative stress markers, evaluation of plant physiological state, plant tissue cultures and toxicological assays. During my post doc, I have been investigating plant-based compounds with insecticidal potential aiming to obtain environmentally friendly agrochemicals.
