DPM Student

Lisbeth was born in Santa Rosa, a beautiful and peaceful town located in southern Ecuador, dedicated basically to agriculture and aquaculture. Since she was a little child she felt the calling to develop her knowledge in this field. Her undergraduate studies were in Agricultural sciences and after that she worked at the Biotechnology Research Centre of Ecuador (CIBE) which is an associate research center to the Polytechnic School of the Littoral (ESPOL). At this time she had the opportunity to get involved in a project of extension with small farmers as well as in plant pathology and diagnostics.

Her previous experience and passion for learning new things drove her to the DPM program, she realized that this program offers all the tools and skills to do what she loves to do and does not limit her knowledge to one field, she can learn about insects, plant diseases, nematodes, weeds, soils, anything. Her first year in this program has been challenging however all the experiences gained have definetly made it worthwhile. She believes that this knowledge will be really helpful to the agriculture and education of her country.

"This is a hard-core program, but I like it!!"
