Research and its application

Pratik has completed his PhD in plant protection with experience of working in biological control. He is currently working as a Postdoctoral researcher at Comenius University Bratislava. His topic is testing non-thermal plasma (NTP) against different plant pests and diseases and also investigating synergy or antagonism between NTP and biological control agents.
