RESEARCH DESCRIPTION:

I am interested in identifying the viral and host determinants of influenza and Ebola virus pathogenicity, and the underlying mechanisms that account for the pathogenicity of these viruses. My research includes basic virology studies, systems biology approaches, and applied research aimed at developing novel vaccines and antiviral treatments to combat influenza and Ebola virus infections.
