Presentation

Dr. Dimas M. Ribeiro has a degree in Agricultural Sciences and a DSc in Plant Physiology, both of which were obtained from the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV). He received sandwich training at the University of the West of England (Bristol, UK) and postdoctoral training at the Federal University of Viçosa and Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology/Potsdam University, as a fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Plant Physiology in the Plant Biology Department at UFV.
