Gergely Ujvári graduated from the Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in biology, with a master’s specialization in microbiology, immunology and molecular biology. Following his studies, he participated in an Erasmus+ traineeship program at the University of Pisa, expanding his theoretical and practical knowledge. Later, he enrolled in the doctoral program in agriculture, food and environment, with the project “Diversity of root-associated microbial communities as affected by plant growth-promoting bacteria, arbuscular mycorrhizal symbionts and their associated microbiota”.

Through his professional journey, he has learned to use diverse molecular and traditional microbiological approaches to capture some of the infinite complexity of microbial life. He has specialized in the research of multimodal and multipartite plant-microbe interactions at the root-soil interface.
