Our lab is interested in studying the biology, ecology and epidemiology of native and non-native tree pests and pathogens that are causing economic and ecological damage to our forests.

We work with a variety of damaging agents affecting broadleaf and conifer tree species in forests and urban settings. Our diagnostics lab uses classical and cutting-edge molecular techniques to detect and identify damaging agents of trees. Our research broadly focuses on:

Our research has a strong stakeholder focus for managing forest diseases in order to ensure multiple ecosystem benefits from forests and protect biodiversity associated with threatened tree species.
