Expertise

Research interests

Characterized the function of TGA transcription factors in reactive oxylipin signaling (Stotz et al., 2013).  Provided insights into hormonal signaling and metabolic defence networks after white mould infection (Stotz et al., 2011).  Uncovered genetic components of defence responses in apple (Akagi et al., 2011) and tomato after gray mould infection (Akagi et al., 2010).  Discovered the function of abscisic acid signaling in defence against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Guo and Stotz, 2010).  Determined the function of a tomato defensin (Stotz et al., 2009).  Defined genetic loci contributing to grey mould resistance in tomato (Davis et al., 2009).
