Research Statement:

Research in our lab focuses on the ecology and management of forest tree diseases, primarily in California. These diseases include those caused by introduced pathogens as well as native pathogens. Research in the lab takes a multiscale approach ranging from experimental studies on the basic biology of organisms to field studies at landscape scales. Active collaborations include projects with landscape ecologists, epidemiologists, molecular biologists, entomologists, and forest managers.
