Profile

I am a plant pathologist with the core research objective of developing methods for controlling plant diseases with fewer fungicides. My research interests are plant disease epidemiology and diagnosis, pathogen characterization, disease forecasting and modelling, integrated pest management (IPM), chemical disease control, host resistance, fertilizer management to control plant diseases, and utilizing host physiological responses to suppress diseases development. My past and present research has been mostly with the potato-early blight and late blight pathosystem. Thus, I have in-depth knowledge on the biology and cycle of Alternaria solani and Phytophthora infestans, which are the pathogens responsible for early and late blight, respectively.
