The Role of the Cell Wall in Plant Immunity

I am interested in the plant cell wall as the first line of defense against invading pathogens

  • Plant-Fungal interactions, Plant Cell Walls, Protein-protein interactions, Advanced Microscopy, Plant biotic/abiotic stress

Research projects

  • Visualizing plant cell infection by a pathogenic fungus using fluorescent markers and microscopy
  • Identifying new cell wall damage signals
  • Analyzing protein-protein interactions within protein complexes involved in cell wall synthesis
