Research interests:
My main interest in forest pathology lies with diseases that affect trees of economic importance. I am interested in the development of new methods for controlling tree diseases, the science of tree defense mechanisms, and basic biology of plant pathogenic fungi. Currently my M.S. project is focused on the histological identification of host responses in eastern white pine to the pathogen Cronartium ribicola (white pine blister rust). This research will help to further our understanding of resistance mechanisms in white pine.
