Areas of Expertise
The focus of our research is Translational Taxonomy of Bacterial Plant Pathogens. We use taxonomic inquiry to develop management strategies for bacterial diseases of plants and cultivated mushrooms. Management strategies include biological control, host plant resistance, inoculum detection and management, and changes crop production practices (e.g., crop rotation).
