I am the J.A.T. Mortlock Professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Adelaide, and Deputy Head of the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine.

My main area of research is fungal and bacterial diseases of horticultural crops, grapevines and pulses. Current research is supported by Wine Australia and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.

I am the immediate Past-President of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society (President 2103-15).

I have been the Faculty of Sciences Deputy Dean for Gender, Equity and Diversity since 2013.

My research focuses on the diagnosis, epidemiology and management of fungal and bacterial diseases of grapevines, horticultural crops and pulses. I also led a recent project on Phytophthora diseases of natural ecosystems in South Australia.

Current research is supported by Wine Australia (formerly Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation) and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. I also contribute to the Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre. In recent years, my research has also been supported by the ARC and I led research projects on Fungal contaminants and their impact on wine quality, and Diagnosis and management of Eutypa dieback in the Cooperative Research Centre for Viticulture (2003-2006) with support from the GWRDC.

My group currently comprises three postdoctoral researchers, three PhD students and one masters by research student. Collaborators include Dr Katja Hogendoorn (University of Adelaide), Drs Jenny Davidson and Mark Sosnowski (South Australian Research and Development Institute), Dr Katherine Evans (Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and University of Tasmania) and Dr Bob Emmett (formerly Department of Environment and Primary Industry Victoria).

I teach in the following courses: Microbiology and Invertebrate Biology II, Microbiology for Viticulture and Oenology II, Microbiology and Biotechnology II, Plant Health III and Plant Health A (postgraduate), Viticultural Methods and Procedures III and Viticultural Methods and Procedures A (postgraduate).

I am course co-ordinator for Microbiology and Invertebrate Biology II.

I have a keen interest in supervision of research students, and have supervised 38 PhD students and 29 honours students to successful completion at the University of Adelaide. Awards for supervision include the University of Adelaide Excellence in Higher Degree by Research Supervision Award in 2012 and the Adelaide University Postgraduate Students' Association Supervisor of the Year Award in 2001 (for which I was nominated again in 2005).
