I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in Agricultural Biology from Korean University (Seoul, Korea) and Ph.D. degree in Plant Pathology from Cornell University. Since 2007, I have been working at LSU AgCenter, studying molecular genetics/genomics of plant pathogenic bacteria, rice disease resistance, innovative disease management strategies using biological agents, and microbiomes of agricultural environments. Rice and soybean are major target crops for my research program.
