I completed my Master degree at the University of Göttingen Germany. My master thesis project was on the colonization of oilseed rape plants by Verticillium longisporum and the role of seed transmission on vertical spread of Verticillium stem striping in winter and spring type cultivars. Completion of this project motivated me to further my studies in research. I got the prestigious Halpin scholarship for rice blast research from Nick Talbot’s Group at the University of Exeter to investigate the role of autophagy in the fate of organelles during appressorium development.
