Ivânia Esteves (IE) holds a degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Évora, Portugal (2001) and a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Cranfield, England (2007). She is currently developing research activities in the NEMATO-lab, Centre for Functional Ecology (CFE), at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Coimbra (UC), Portugal. The majority of the research since her PhD has been centered in finding alternative strategies to manage plant-parasitic nematodes in agro-ecosystems through the use of fungal biocontrol agents and nematicidal phytocompounds. In the last five years, has started a new research topic in the , CFE-UC, after an extensive survey on potato fields in Portugal to evaluate molecular diversity and pathogenicity of Pratylenchus spp. in potato crops. At present, she is coordinating an FCT funded research project on the tropical root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne luci (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-031946), is involved in 2 other ongoing national/regional projects focusing root-lesion nematodes and is co-supervising a PhD study. To date, IE has published more than 20 articles in international journals, 4 book chapters and various abstracts in ISI journals and / or ISSN / ISBN journals. She has been involved in the organization of 3 international scientific meetings in the field of phytopathology, 1 national colloquium, supervision of students and regularly participates in various scientific outreach activities organized by her host institution.
