Waite AFW Seminar Series
Jun 6, 10:30 am
Please come along to this campus-wide seminar series. One week we will hear from a group leader or a visitor to the campus and the following week from ECR/MCRs from the Waite Future Leaders cohort. Come and hear about great science going on across the campus, up the road or across the sea! Expand your network and find new collaborators!
Everyone is welcome to a shared morning tea (please bring your own coffee cup) following the seminar.
WHEN: Thursday 6th June. 10:30am Seminar, followed by morning tea
WHERE: Plant Research Centre Auditorium
SPEAKER: Guido Ramirez Caceres, Rizobacter, Argentina
Guido Ramirez Caceres and Estefania Poropat are both consultants for the company Rizobacter (www.rizobacter.com) and have recently completed their masters in Australia (backgrounds below).
They will be visiting SARDI and the Waite Campus on the 6th and 7th of June. Guido will be presenting a seminar about Rizobacter and his research interests in rhizobium and other bio-inoculants as part of the AFW- SARDI seminar series.
They are keen to meet with scientists on campus with similar interests. If you are interested please email Liz Farquharson (email@example.com) to arrange a time.
Guido M. Ramirez Caceres
From 2013-2017 Guido has worked in the seed and rural merchandise industry and in the R&D and Commercial areas of Rizobacter (www.rizobacter.com), a company with a strong focus in biofertilizers. He is currently working for the firm as a Business Development consultant whilst completing his Masters Degree at UWA. For his Masters research project, he analysed chickpea performance in ameliorated sodic soil of a low-rainfall environment, supervised by Tim Colmer and Shahab. Guido has an interest in cropping systems, biotechnology and in the process of transforming valuable research into products.
Estefania works for Rizobacter as a Regulatory Affairs Officer, as part of the R&D team. Estefania holds a BSc in Biotechnology from the University of Quilmes in Argentina and is about to finish her Master of Agricultural Science at UWA. She moved to Perth after winning a scholarship from the Argentinian government to carry out her masters while also consulting for Rizobacter in Regulatory Affairs. For her research project, she has worked with soil inoculation strategies for the delivery of wax-degrading bacteria, targeting water repellent soil amelioration, an extended constraint in WA sandy soils. She is interested in all kinds of biotechnological tools to improve agricultural systems, from innovative inputs to molecular tools as services for farmers.
