Dr Keith Davies


Keith Davies is an applied nematologist with expertise in the area of nematode pathology and its application to the development of biological control agents.  He has over 20 years’ experience undertaking research in the area of the biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes. His interests range from molecular aspects of host parasitic interactions and the use of Caenorhabditis elegans as a model for microbial pathogenicity, through to the ways that molecular diversity affects the etiology of host parasite population dynamics.  He is most widely known for his work on the understanding of host specificity between the bacterium Pasteuria penetrans and related organisms and plant parasitic nematodes.

Dr Davies is a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London and member of the European Society of Nematology and Association of Applied Biologists.  He is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Life and Medical Sciences, University of Hertfordshire, and Module Leader in the Master’s Programme in Environmental Management with Agriculture in the area of crop protection.
