Mavrodi started working at the USM as research associate in 2013 in Dr. Dmitri Mavrodi's laboratory. Her research is broadly focused on plant microbiome and plant-microbe interactions. Plants, like humans, host distinct microbial communities that supply plants with nutrients and defend them against pathogens. The research seeks to understand how interactions between plants and microorganisms may change in response to environmental stress. The second line of my research is focused on the use of plant-derived antimicrobials to control pathogenic microbes. For more details visit her publication list.
