Dr. Maroua Jerbi is a postdoctoral researcher at the National Agronomic Institute of Tunisia. Her research interests focused primarily on soil-plant-microorganisms’ interactions for enhancing sustainable agriculture systems and ensuring food security while preserving the environment. After finishing her engineering studies, she received her PhD on agricultural sciences from the National Agronomic Institute of Tunisia. Her major focus areas of work include the beneficial effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal biofertilization to improve crop productivity as well as soil fertility, under abiotic stress. Her postdoc research continued with the same line. She is currently working on improving cropping sustainability and resilience through the application of agroecological practices such as reduced tillage, using beneficial microorganisms and intercropping to reduce chemical inputs, improve soil fertility and enhance crop productivity face to climate change. She also worked as a junior agronomist expert where she provided technical assistance to smallholders in semi-arid and arid regions to improve their knowledge regarding sustainable agricultural practices and to encourage them to apply eco-friendly tools. Also, she participated in several research projects on sustainable crop management.
