I am interested in plant-pathogen interactions and mechanisms of disease resistance, and how this knowledge can be applied to improve global food security.

During my PhD, I hope to study the multiple pathogen resistance specificities at the Mla locus in barley, giving a better understanding of nonhost-pathogen interactions.
