Dr. Cristian Jorge Meriño Gergichevich is Associate Professor at the Universidad de La Frontera, Chile, and author of more than 30 scientific publications in the last ten years. He has been involved in FONDECYT, FONDEF, and CORFO projects with fruit species such as cherry, blueberry, chestnut, walnut and hazelnut. His post-doctoral research relied on boron and calcium's effect on toxic aluminum in Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) grown in acidic soil conditions. Currently, Dr. Meriño heads two research projects, titled: “Quality Traits and Fruit Yield in Hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) Associated with Boron and Zinc Levels and Phenological Stage of Application in Plantations of Southern Chile” and “Sostenibilidad y Uso Eficiente de Recursos en la Producción de Avellano Europeo (Corylus avellana L.) para la Zona Centro Sur de Chile”. In addition, Dr. Meriño has been a co-researcher and adjunct researcher in the International Cooperation Network REDI-170615 International network for improving food production, Nexer network in extremophites role in stress tolerance, VIU20P0027, Innova Corfo PI-3737, and DIUFRO (DI21-0044, DI21-0104). The researcher is the coordinator of the Eramus+ Mobility Agreement 2017-2022 between the Universities of Zagreb and La Frontera. On the other hand, has expertise in planting, agronomic management, production of deciduous fruit species and is a technical advisor for evaluation consultants in organic commercial productions.
Research lines aimed at environmental stresses caused by excess or deficiency of macro and micronutrients on growth, antioxidant biochemistry, and physiology of deciduous fruit and annual crops.
Plant Nutrition, Edaphology, and Fruit Production.
