Dr DongHyeon Lee
Microbiology and Plant Pathology
My name is DongHyeon Lee and I am from South Korea. I am currently enrolled in the third year of Ph.D student at the University of Pretoria. I have started my Ph.D. project under the supervision of Prof. Michael J. Wingfield, Prof. Brenda D. Wingfield and Prof. Jolanda Roux. In addition, as a part of the diagnostic clinic member at the Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) I have been working at the diagnostic clinic under the supervision of Prof. Jolanda Roux.
My research interest is on the tree pathogenic fungus, Ceratocystis albifundus, causing serious wilt disease on Black wattle (Acacia mearnsii) in Africa. Specifically, my research focus is made on the biology and genetics of this fungal pathogen so that I am dealing with the aspect of the fitness, the reproductive strategies and the association of insect vectors.
