My research program studies mainly soilborne plant pathogens of diverse crops of relevance in Oklahoma. Several projects are conducted in collaboration with colleagues from the U.S. and international institutions. 

Current projects include:

Population genetics

  • Population genetics of Pythium spp. 
  • Population genetics of Puccinia emaculata (Switchgrass rust) 
  • Population genetics of Sclerotinia minor, the causal agent of Sclerotinia blight of Peanut in OK. 
  • Population genetics of Phymatotrichopsis omnivora on cotton in OK and TX.
