Profile

I am a Ph.D. student working under Dr. Hehe Wang at Clemson University Edisto REC in Blackville, SC. My research is focused on management of bacterial spot and bacterial canker disease in peach trees. Bacterial spot (Xanthomonas arboricola pv. pruni) can cause severe defoliation in trees and significantly reduce the marketability of fruit. Bacterial canker (Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae) infection on woody tissues leads to shoots and tree death. My work focuses on developing new spray programs with biopesticides to manage these diseases in peach trees sustainably.
