“We are trying to understand how viruses make us sick, and are interested in developing means to prevent that”.

Our group studies virus-host interactions of emerging human RNA viruses including Influenza, SARS-CoV-2, and Flaviviruses. We strive to translate this knowledge for the development of broad-spectrum antivirals and vaccines. Our expertise is in the multi-omics analysis of virus-host interactions, viral reverse genetics, and small animal models of viral pathogenesis.
