Dr Francesco Martoni (PostDoc, Lincoln University)
@CescoMartons
Don't know what psyllids are? You'd be silly to miss this opportunity to find out in tonight's talk about insects, DNA, bacteria and the importance of knowing names when discussing the psyllid biodiversity of New Zealand and Australia.

Dr Martoni recently received his PhD in Entomology from the Lincoln University, New Zealand. He started his first PostDoc in Melbourne working for Agriculture Victoria.
