Dr Stodart has BSc (Hons) from Flinders University of South Australia. He completed PhD studies in plant pathology/molecular biology at The University of Adelaide before working as a technical officer at CSIRO Land and Water, performing research on several soil-borne plant pathogens.
Following a move to Wagga Wagga in 2001, Dr Stodart worked in the molecular biology laboratory at NSW DPI, where he was involved in the assessment genetic diversity of wheat landraces held within the Australian winter cereals collection.
Ben is currently the project scientist on an ACIAR funded project establishing plant pathology capabilities and training in Cambodia, with an emphasis on diseases of rice.
- Understanding and management of rice pathogens in Cambodia (ACIAR)
- Population dynamics of plant pathogens
- Host/pathogen relations
- Population genetics
