Research Focus

I am interested in studying the responses of the strawberry powdery mildew pathogen (Podosphaera aphanis) to light. Areas I hope to contribute to include: light as a non-chemical control, factors responsible for increased disease severity under plastic tunnel production relative to field plantings, circadian regulation.
