Research Focus

In my research I focus on the relationship between tree (species) diversity and infection as well as infestation of foliar fungal pathogens, using several tree diversity experiments and old forests in Europe (FunDivEUROPE   ) as well as the largest tree diversity experiment in the world, in China (BEF-China   ).
