Nga is a plant pathologist wanting to make an impact for agriculture through research to improve our understanding of the pathogen biology and disease epidemiology. Her areas of expertise span fungal, bacterial and viral diseases of plants, with core skills and interests in etiology and epidemiology, diagnostics, population genetics, pathogen – vector interactions, and host resistance. New knowledge generated from Nga’s research will facilitate effective and sustainable management of diseases, which in turn will increase food security and crop productivity, and improve the lives of subsistence farmers.
