Academic Background

  • Ph.D. in, Plant Molecular Biology and Virology, Ehime University, Japan, 2013
  • M.Sc. in Molecular Plant Pathology, Ehime University, Japan, 2010

Research Interests and Current Efforts

My laboratory focuses on advanced testing for plant pathogens via molecular and serological methods (PCR, RT-PCR, qPCR, LAMP, ELISA etc.) on plant samples affected by bacteria, fungi, viruses, or nematodes. We provide molecular testing support to extension & research personnel, commercial growers & homeowners, and the Georgia Department of Agriculture for vegetables, fruits, turf, ornamentals, and other plants. My research interests include: (1) the development of cost-efficient and validated modern diagnostic methods for diseases across a range of crops, (2) statewide major plant disease survey to detect and quantify disease risks, and (3) molecular characterization of newly reported plant pathogens.
