overview

We and plants detect \"danger\" by recognizing microbe-associated molecules and launch complex innate immune signaling to prevent infection. Successful pathogens, however, have evolved multiple sophisticated virulence strategies to dampen the host immunity and result in infection. My research interest is to understand the genetic, molecular and biochemical mechanisms of the dynamic host-microbe interactions using Arabidopsis-Pseudomonas as a model plant-pathogen system. My ultimate goal is to understand how the host-microbe interactions shape the evolution of microbial pathogenicity and plant immunity in both model and economically important plants.
