Research Areas

Trained in plant-microbe interactions, I have worked on plant resistance genes, bacterial-fungal interactions in close symbioses, and effector biology. I am most interested in how microbes influence each other and interact with their host(s) on a molecular level. My skill set is largely in microbial genetics, biochemistry, and in planta assays. My research goals are to identify how microbes adapt to different environments and control hosts to inform disease control and breeding/engineering resistant plants.
