Our research group is interested in understanding how plant-associated microbial communities assemble and function. Many of us study how the microbiome influences plant disease severity. Our research addresses basic questions in microbial community ecology, fungal ecology, and plant pathology, while also contributing to advances in microbiome management for enhanced crop productivity and plant conservation.
