New faces at the Department
These are the people that recently have arrived to the Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology.
Binhong is a new postdoctoral fellow in the epidemiology group. He will be working on a project to understand the evolutionary consequences (fitness, pathogenicity and other functional traits) and mechanisms of fungicide resistance to the wheat pathogen Z. tritici using population genomic approaches. He will be with the department for two years and currently sits in D346.
Oliver Moore is the new postdoc in the Soil Microbiology group. He is from the UK and did his PhD at the University of Manchester. He will work together with Aurélien and Sara and look into the ecology of microorganisms involved Dissimilatory Nitrate Reduction to Ammonium (DNRA). The experimental work will be based on microcosm and greenhouse experiments. Oliver shares office with Mukesh in the A corridor.
