Biography

Vu Thanh received her Ph.D in the University of Adelaide in 2012. In her PhD, she studied strategies for eradicating systemic plant pathogenic bacterium using pistachio dieback pathogen (Xanthomonas translucenspv. pistaciae) as a model. She also earned her Masters degree from the University of Adelaide, where she studied the effect of a biological control agent, Trichoderma sp., on Verticillium wilt disease of tomato and cotton. For her degree in engineer of agronomy, she studied viral diseases of flowers and ornamental plants. Before entering academic in 2013, she had worked for FAO in the field of integrated pest management and agricultural biodiversity. Therefore, she is devoted to protecting environment and biodiversity for food and agriculture.

Research  Interests

Fungal and bacterial diseases of agricultural and industrial crops and their management using biological control approach
