Research Interests
I'm interested in macro phenomena in plant epidemiology and the analysis of these phenomena using interdisciplinary approaches. The thesis of my PhD was on the risk assessment of soybean rust caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi in the US using comparative approaches. I'm currently working for soybean rust forecast and disease scouting. Besides soybean rust, other soybean diseases in the US and other diseases in China are also my interests.
