Georgiana May

Georgiana MayDr. May's research concerns the evolutionary and ecological interaction of endophytic fungi, pathogens and plants. In their research, they use molecular evolutionary, genomic, and organismal-level approaches. They want to know how the complex interactions of the plant "microbiome" might affect the evolution and expression of pathogen virulence, and thus affect plant health and reproduction.
