Andrea is working on Bacterial canker disease on sweet cherry (Prunus avium, L.) caused by some pathovars in the Pseudomonas syringae species complex. Mainly, focusing on elucidating the importance of effector proteins and phytotoxins for Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae pathogenicity. She has a strong interest in molecular plant-pathogen interactions and how they evolve over time.
Prior, Andrea worked as a research assistant at OWL metabolomics (Derio, Spain). She studied a BSc in Biology at University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and a MSc on Environmental Agrobiology at UPV/EHU and the Public University of Navarra (UPNA).
