We are interested in three broad research areas: i) ecology of emerging diseases, ii) pathogen transmission biology, and iii) insect-microbe interactions. We currently use two research systems to address questions of interest, the xylem-limited leafhopper-transmitted bacterium Xylella fastidiosa, and the mealybug-borne grapevine leafroll virus complex.
