Areas of Interest

My research is focuses on Heterobasidion root rot of pines, one of the most important pathogens of conifer forests in North America. I will be exploring the distribution and elucidate the biology of Heterobasidion irregulare, a new invasive pathogen in Minnesota with the goal of developing biological control strategies.
