Departamento de Ingeniería de Procesos
Valeska Villegas is a Professor of the Process Engineering Department at EAFIT
University. She is a Chemical Engineer with a Master and PhD studies in
Biotechnology. Her research activities have been focus on the production of
biopesticides and biofertilizers for different agricultural crops.
research interests are focus on the screening and evaluation of bacteria for
plant growth promotion and for control of plant pathogens. I am also interested
in exploring the mechanisms of action of these bacteria in their natural
environments, as well on applying them in different crops and agricultural
systems. My group also works on studding and optimizing the production process and
formulation of bacteria for development of commercially viable products.
