Ana Margarida Pereira de Azevedo Corrêa

Post-Doc Researcher

Mycorrhiza N C Symbiosis Urban farming

I received a Ph.D. in Ecophysiology from the University of Lisbon in 2007 and I am currently working in the Plant Soil Ecology group of cE3c. My research focuses on symbioses with a focus on mycorrhizal symbioses, carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) nutrition and cost-benefit analysis.
I have worked with both ectomycorrhizal and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) systems in an attempt to evaluate and understand the effects of the interaction on plant benefit and physiology. I am currently working on the application of microorganisms on hydroponic systems for production of crop species. In paralell, I am continuing my research on the understanding of the nature of mycorrhizal symbioses, with a growing focus on phylosophical and social aspects.

My current research is driven by three overarching objectives: Clarify regulatory mechanisms of nutrient exchange in AM; Clarify the phosphorus vs N hierarchy, interactions and dependence in AM; Investigate the phylosophical and social bases of our understanding of mutualistic symbioses in general and mycorrhizal symbioses in particular.
