Research InterestsMy lab's research seeks to characterize the genetics, developmental biology, and pathology of oomycete fungi, particularly those within the genus Phytophthora. Most of our projects involve Phytophthora infestans, which causes the late blight diseases of tomato and potato. The approaches we use are multidisciplinary and incorporate the tools of molecular and classical genetics, biochemistry, genomics, and bioinformatics. In the long term, our work will lead to a greater understanding of the oomycetes and strategies for their control.
