My research interest is to answer the questions of why, when and where new diseases or disease problems occur. My major topics are:

1) analysis of emergence of new disease problems in association with changes in agricultural systems and climate change;

2) the interaction between fungi and transgenic plants and its consequences to crop production;

3) macro-scale patterns of diseases occurrence for disease prediction, and

4) biological control: use of biological agents to control diseases.
