Plant pathogen interactions
My research addresses the biology and genetics of Leptosphaeria maculans, the cause of blackleg disease of canola and the main threat to the canola industry in Australia and worldwide.
- Evolution of plant resistance and pathogen virulence
- Canola (Brassica napus) pathogens
- Determining the impact of plant selection on pathogen evolution
- Identification of antifungal drug resistance mechanisms
