Rosita Yocgo


Researcher at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Rwanda

Dr Yocgo is currently a researcher at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Rwanda. She was Extra-ordinary Researcher at University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Her research focus is on multilevel plant interactions. She uses a multidisciplinary approach (field observations, biotechnology, computing/modeling) to document mutualistic and antagonistic plant interactions, their resultant network topologies, and investigates the influence of environmental change drivers (climate, land use, pathogens/pests). This is in an effort to identify inert patterns or molecular markers that can be exploited to promote a healthy and sustainable agro-ecological system and plant community for increased food security and environmental conservation efforts.
