Hanna Friberg
I am interested in the ecology of plant pathogenic fungi, especially how they interact with other organisms in their environment. Better knowledge on these interactions is important in the development of sustainable crop production systems.


My research is within the field of plant pathology and sustainable crop protection. Teaching is an important part of my work, especially in courses for agronomy students. I am course leader for Crop production – weeds, pests and diseases, and assistant director of studies for the Agriculture Programme - Soil and Plant Sciences (5-year programme), the Bachelor programme on Plant production and the Master programme Soil, Water and Environment. I am also supervising Bachelor and Master thesis students within the subject plant pathology.

Many of the research questions I work with are of an interdisciplinary nature, making collaborations with scientists from other areas crucial for my work. A close collaboration with stakeholders outside of research is also a central part in my research.
