My previous research included the detection and management of Phytophthora cinnamomi in natural ecosystems of south west Western Australia, and understanding the underlying causes of and determining practical management solutions to canker disease of Corymbia calophylla (marri), a keystone tree species of SWWA, caused by the endemic fungal pathogen Quambalaria coyrecup.
