My name is Loretta Mugo-Kamiri, ESR 14. During the past 20 months of my PhD, I have been working on Spodoptera exigua at the Univeristy of Tours, France and Plutella xylostella at the University of Exeter, Penryn, UK; two globally devastating crop pests. The objective of my study is to understand the tripartite interaction between diet, gut microbiota and pathogens in the control of these pests.
