My research interests center around understanding the genetic root of disease resistance and susceptibility and how improvements in the lab can be translated to improvements in the agricultural sector. I attempt to utilize genetic and genomic approaches to create a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms involved in host-pathogen and pest interactions. I believe that by applying my expertise in both the molecular sciences and computational methods, I can better develop a holistic understanding of the systems we investigate in the lab.
