Marcus Vinícius Fipke, Ph.D.
Fipke is a doctoral student in Crop Protection, advised by Prof. Luis Antonio de Avila and a CAPES fellow, and is studying the efficacy of herbicides in Eragrostis plana Ness plants acclimated to water deficit, focusing on elucidating the interaction of water deficit and sub-doses of herbicides with increased tolerance to glyphosate and quizalofop-p-ethyl herbicides in subsequent generations of Eragrostis plano. Born in Santa Rosa, RS, he chose Agronomy as a profession when he studied as Agricultural Technician (2006-2008). Subsequently, he graduated in Agronomy from the Federal University of Pelotas (2009-2014) and Master in Phytotechnics from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2014-2016). He joined CEHERB in 2016, when he started his PhD at the Crop Protection Graduate Program (2016-). Currently, his research is focused on the study of the interaction of abiotic stresses x herbicide resistance in Eragostis plana.
