Her research is focused on forest entomology, agriculture entomology and entomopathogenic microorganisms, particularly entomopathogenic nematodes and fungi. Therefore, focused on the isolation of entomopathogenic nematodes and fungi, she studies their mechanisms of action and their pathogenicity against phytopathogens. For example, xylophagous insects, legume parasites, and vectors of pathogens such as Phileanus spumarius. More recently, she aimed her studies on the development of sensitive and accurate diagnostic techniques of plant pathogens such as plant parasitic nematodes.
