Research Interests

My research focuses on IPM management practices that can suppress soil-borne pathogens and improve soil health.  More specifically, conducting hypotheses-driven research projects aimed at enhancing our understanding of the effects of low-risk fumigants, cover crops, grafted and resistant tomato genotypes on suppressing soil-borne pathogens, influencing microbial communities, and enhancing tomato yield and fruit quality. My long-range research goal as a plant pathologist is to generate research that provides farmers, agribusiness companies, and extension agents with a sustainable and integrated management strategy for soilborne pathogens in various production systems.
