My lectureship in Plant Pathology at the University of Birmingham is linked to the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research. From this position, I will develop cutting-edge research to provide novel strategies to secure tree resilience to diseases. I am committed to work towards environmental protection and my placement at BIFoR will allow the development of my research group in translational Plant Pathology.
BIFoR aims to address the impact of climate and environmental change on woodlands. For this, we have a Free Air CO2 Enritchment (FACE) experiment running in the woodlands of Staffordshire. You can find all the information of BIFoR FACE here.
This is a new field to me and I strongly welcome new collaborations. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like us to explore new ideas!
In addition, I am organizing a conference in tree pathology, entitled “Thinking higher: towards biosecurity of Forest Trees”.
