My research centers on insect transmission of the bacterium associated with citrus greening disease (also known as Huanglongbing), which is currently the most serious disease of citrus plants. I use molecular biology, proteomics, and RNA aptamer technology to study how the bacteria is transmitted between hosts with the goal of inhibiting vector spread of this devastating pathogen.
