About Us


The goal of our laboratory is to develop useful tools and strategies to manage
emerging and re-emerging plant diseases. To this end, we will collaborate with
other experts, adopting a multidisciplinary approach. We will be recognized for embracing phenomics and participating in the transformation of agriculture to a more data and analytics-driven science.


We will develop useful epidemiological tools and disease management strategies to help producers become more productive, efficient, and environmentally sustainable.


Our program aims at developing effective management strategies for crop diseases. Our interdisciplinary research focuses on the integration of fungal ecology, epidemiology, and host resistance for plant disease management.
