Research Interest
My focus is to develop control strategies through the identification of resistance sources, identification of molecular markers, and the development of diagnostic probes for fast screening of susceptible/resistant cultivars to minimize the impact of sorghum diseases such as anthracnose, grain mold, head smut, and downy mildew. These fungal pathogens are emerging problems that affect sorghum production efficiency, grain quality, and the overall economic and nutritional value of the grain
