Research Statement

My work focuses on ensuring that other ARS scientists have available to them the computational tools needed to study plant diseases using state of the art high-throughput instruments. This included developing and applying new computational methods for analyzing large datasets from high-throughput biological experiments. These methods include genome assembly and annotation, comparative genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, etc. I have worked and continue to work with other ARS and university scientists to study a number of different phytopathogenic bacterial systems, including Pseudomonas syringae pv tomato, Pantoea ananatis, Liberibacter crescens, Clavibacter michiganensis michiganensis and Dickeya spp.
