Current research interests
My current research is aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which Phytophthora sp., cause epidemics on crop plants. More specifically, work in my group focuses on the functions of the Crinklers, a novel class of cytoplasmic effectors from Phytophthora. In addition, we are interested in the events that couple signaling cues to developmental transitions during pathogen ingress. We hypothesise that these processes are critical for disease establishment and form a possible basis for regulation of effector secretion and delivery.
