Personal profile

Biography

Strong research skills in mycology/fungal taxonomy and in plant pathology. Investigated and published on a wide range of fungal diseases of oilseed Brassica, pasture legume, pulse and cereal crops and experience with the diagnosis of a very wide range of fungal taxa that contain important fungal soilborne and foliar pathogens of pastures, field and horticulture crops in Australia. Investigated and published on the causes of many previously undiagnosed root and foliar disorders of pastures and field crops in Australia, involving extensive taxonomic studies.

Roles and responsibilities

30 years of experience with disease epidemiology and aetiology and experimentation in plant-fungal interactions to identify host resistance to a wide range of diseases of oilseed Brassica, pasture legume and pulse crops.

Future research

Plant Pathology and Mycology of agricultural and horticultural crops

Funding overview

New appointee to the University of Western Australia in 2004

Previous positions

Principal Plant Pathologist, Department of Agriculture Western Australia until end of 2003
