Luis Enrique Chavarín Gómez
Kyke obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology in our lab, with the financial support of a CONACyT scholarship. Subsequently, in september 2016 he was accepted in the MSc program (BIMARENA-UdG) and got his degree in the summer 2018. After this, he Immediately applied for a position in the Doctoral program BEMARENA-UdG and got a place. He will continue his MSc project studying the decisions that a parasitoid wasp takes when confronted to patches bearing different properties.
Michel Andrea Saavedra Lastra
Michel obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Sonora (UniSon, Mexico). She started participating with our group in February 2021. In September 2021, she was awarded an MSc scholarship from CONACyT to perform her master's degree in the BIMARENA program with our research group. Her research subject deals with natural enemies of one of the most important pests of maize: Spodoptera frugiperda known as the Fall Armyworm (FAW) or "cogollero del maíz". This pest has spread to almost all the continents of the world. So then it is crucial its study.

Pedro Torres Enciso
External-Lab PhD Candidate
Supervisor: Dr. Pablo Schliserman (CITCA, Argentina)
Adviser: Dr. Ricardo Ramirez-Romero
Gabriel is studying the interactions between herbivores of Prosopis and their parasitoids under a conservative biological control perspective.
Pit is interested in studying insect predators. He joined our group as a volunteer student. In July 2022, he obtained his undergraduate degree studying the behavior of G. punctipes' males. The results of the projects he has participated in are in preparation for publication. In august 2022 he was accepted at the BEMARENA-UdG doctoral program. He will study the potential of native predators as biological control agents.
