Research Focus

My research focuses on the genetics of Fusarium fungi, many of which can be devastating phytopathogens. Secondary metabolites in Fusarium species can contribute to plant pathogenesis and contaminate food. My projects investigate genetic variation in the secondary metabolite capabilities of Fusarium species, using comparative and population genomics to provide useful information that can help in plant protection.
