Section Board Member
Department of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology, Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, Baton Rouge, LA, USA
Interests: (1) understanding host–fungus interactions between maize (corn) and Aspergillus flavus, the fungus that produces aflatoxins during the infection of susceptible crops; between soybean and Phakopsora pachyrhizi, the causal agent of soybean rust; and between soybean and Cercospora cf. flagellaris/ C. kikuchii, the pathogens causing Cercospora leaf blight; (2) developing strategies to enhance host resistance in maize and soybean to these fungal diseases, such as the overexpression of host-resistance-associated genes or the suppression of key fungal genes through host-induced gene silencing (HIGS)
