Research areas

My research field is the biology, ecology and genetics of beneficial and detrimental microorganisms in natural ecosystems, plantation forestry and horticulture, with a focus on biodiversity and biosecurity issues. I have made significant contributions to these fields especially in the area of pathogen population genetics where I designed several sets of microsatellite markers that were among the first developed for fungal pathogens. I explored cryptic speciation, pathogen movement, survival and establishment under the overarching topic of forest biosecurity.

More recently my research has focused on the molecular systematics and evolutionary biology of Phytophthora and I am the current Director of the Center for Phytophthora Science and Management (CPSM). I have been instrumental in the recognition of 12 new species from Western Australia, which has led my research in unexpected directions. I have discovered a group of Phytophthora hybrids and my work on these is continuing. Many of the new Phytophthora species appear to be endemic to Western Australia and have a potential role as plant community engineers through acting as pre and post emergence damping off of endemic flora, this ground breaking work is continuing. However, the most exciting work to date is the use of High Throughput Sequencing to uncover the diversity and distribution of Phytophthora across Australia and now South Africa. For the past two years we have been collecting rhizosphere soil from across Australia (700 locations to date) and assessing their Phytophthora community. This work is as yet unpublished, but will result in several papers that will completely change our thinking on the diversity and distribution of Phytophthora, the limits to the survival of some species and the extent of invasion across Australia.

Professional and community service

Awards: In 2007 I was awarded the Vice Chancellors Excellence in Research Award for early career researchers.  This was in recognition of publication outputs, grants, students and collaboration

Editorial duties: Since 2004 I have been a senior editor for Australasia Plant Pathology.

Reviewing: In the past 5 years I have reviewed for 14 international plant pathology, forest pathology and mycology journals.  I also review grant applications for the NRF (South Africa) and examine PhD theses.

Management: I manage the finances for all the grants I have received and for the CRC forestry (WA node).  I am a member of the project steering committees for projects 1.2, 4.2 and 4.4 and the Program Steering Committees for Trees in the Landscape (program 4) and for the Education Program (S1)

Conference participation: I have presented oral papers at numerous international conferences.

Workshops:  I run regular Phylogenetics workshops

Collaboration: Outside of Murdoch University, I have numerous active collaborations in Australia with researchers and students in South Africa and project collaborators in Asia

Invitation to be on expert panels: from 2006-2008 I served on an EU project ‘Forthreats’ as an international expert.  From 2010-2014 I will be a Working Group deputy on the EU COST Action FP1002 Pathway evaluation and pest risk management in transport (PERMIT)
