Dr. Joseph Carrillo earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from Arizona State University in 2010. He then followed his interest in plants and obtained a Master of Science in Biological Sciences with a focus on Plant Physiology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in 2014. Later that year, he started the doctoral program in Plant Pathology at the University of California, Riverside and was awarded his Ph.D. in 2019 after his work on the biology and control of Fusarium spp. vectored by invasive ambrosia beetles in California. He is now a post-doctoral scholar at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center and working in Dr. Gary Vallad’s lab trying to recover and screen biological control agents from the local environment for antagonistic properties against Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici race 3 isolates.
