Research interests:

My research involves investigations on the population structure of pathogens affecting Eucalyptus trees in Uruguay. Eucalyptus spp. (primarily E. globulus and E. grandis) are the major trees used in Uruguay for biomass production and are very important to the economy of the country. The explosive increase in the area planted to Eucalyptus over recent years has been associated with increases in disease problems. My investigations will identify exotic and native pathogens causing disease and help develop successful control programs. For more information on this project see the web page on Eucalyptus diseases in Uruguay.
