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.
