My research aims to answer fundamental questions concerning bacterial pathogenicity. My expertise encompasses areas in genomics and molecular biology. I am also mainly specialized in the development of bioinformatics pipelines for the study of plant pathogenic bacteria. My expertise and research focus generally falls into these areas:
- Functional genomics and evolution analysis of emergent plant pathogens with emphasis on Xanthomonas species and Gram-Positive bacteria.
- Develop technologies and tools for functional genome analysis of plant pathogens and host interactions.
- Education and consulting in bioinformatics.
