I work as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, aiming to study how bacteria cause disease in trees. Our project includes several approaches to be employed for the establishment of robust pathosystem models that underpin a detailed examination of infection and disease progression. This research will be applied to the main tree diseases in the UK: acute oak decline, bacterial canker of cherry and ash, bleeding canker of horse chestnut, diseases that had emerged in both UK and Europe within the last 20 years.
