Sara Campigli was born on 21/09/1993 in San Miniato (PI), graduated in 2019 in Agricultural Sciences and Technologies (LM-69) at the University of Florence with a thesis entitled: "Set up a TaqMan Real time PCR assay for rapid and specific diagnosis of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae, the causal agent of the bacterial canker of kiwifruit." (110/110) .
After graduation, she won a research fellowship entitled: "Monitoring of bacterial diseases of kiwifruit in Tuscany, characterization of isolates and development of diagnostic methods for Pseudomonas viridiflava the causal agent of bacterial blight" at the Department of Agricultural, Food, Environmental and Forestry Sciences and Technologies (DAGRI), Section of Plant Pathology and Entomology.
Her major focus is on plant diseased caused by prokaryotes. Her studies are concerned with the development of molecular diagnostic assays, the characterization and the phylogeny of phytopathogenic bacteria, and epidemiological analysis, with special reference to diseases caused by different species of the Pseudomonas syringae group and Xylella fastidiosa.
She is currently attending the PhD course in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at DAGRI (XXXVIII Cycle).
