Academic Interests: 

I have recently transitioned from a full time SFRA to a PhD student. My PhD project will be focused on the characterizing the mlo gene family in hop, with specific interest in mlo genes that have powdery mildew interactions.

On-going research from my time as an SFRA: includes enhancing our understanding of hop powdery mildew (Podosphaera macularis) ecology, population biology, and epidemiology with a specific focus on Pacific Northwest races of the fungus. Also, using the data gained from our mapping population study, a collaboarative effort with the Henning Lab, to assist in characterizing novel disease resistance and developing molecular markers associated with hop powdery and downy mildew (Pseudoperonospora humuli) resistance.
