Research Interests

My research emphasizes the development of techniques for integrated management of pre and post-harvest plant diseases, including cultural, chemical, and biological methods. My work focuses on studies of microbial agents to effectively control plant diseases and the development of technology for the production and formulation of such microbial agents and their metabolites.
