Research Summary Comparative functional genomics and biochemistry of downy mildew effectors

There is an invisible battle that takes place at the molecular level during infection of plants (and animals) by pathogens. I am interested in identifying what weapons are used by both sides and how the evolutionary arms race between plant and pathogen has resulted in amazing diversification in form and function of these microscopic arsenals. Understanding of these interactions will provide new tools for genetic improvement of crops against disease in the face of a growing world population and climate change.
