Overview

About

Job/Research Area

Plant Pathology, and Member of AVRI Council

Major Responsibilities/Research Interests

The research interest focuses on plant disease diagnostics, host-parasite interactions, slowdiseasing resistance, basis of disease resistance, election for disease resistance including alien Sources of resistance, environmentally-friendly disease management, microbiology of crop stubble, and international development research. Current research interests also include medical and animal mycology (isolation and identification of fungi causing mycoses, proteomic biomarkers for diagnosing fungal diseases, virulence factors in fungal pathogens, epidemiology, drug resistance in mycotic agents, natural plant products as novel antimycotic compounds for management of diseases, and molds and indoor air quality). Research is also being conducted on inactivation of fungal plant pathogens during composting of urban forestry green wood. 

Major Award

Award for Outstanding Research conferred at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Phytopathological Society held at Waterton Lakes Lodge, Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada from June 16-19, 2002.
