I am interested in the biology and control of fungal diseases of Mediterranean woody species, specially in forest and horticultural species (mainly Quercus, Prunus and Vitis). Since 2003 my research interest has focused on the main grapevine trunk diseases: esca, Eutypa dieback and Botryosphaeria canker. Main topics of my current research projects include biology, epidemiology and control of these diseases.
