Ye Xia received her PhD in Plant Pathology from University of Kentucky in 2010. From 2010-2015, she has been a post-doctor at the University of Kentucky. She has been in the Plant Pathology Department at OSU since 2015.

Her research has been focused on the biochemical, genetic, and molecular mechanisms as well as application of plant disease resistance and beneficial plant-microbe/microbiome interactions to improve plant health and yield for sustainable agriculture. Xia pursues two main research areas: Plant surface (fatty acid/lipid, cell wall, stomata, and cuticle) mediated plant immunity against diverse pathogens; and the mechanisms and improvement of plant immunity and yield by beneficial microbes from phytobiome.
