shared postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Eric Jan


“My passion lies with viruses. I am interested in virus discovery, virus-host interactions, particularly how viruses modify the host proteome to enhance their own lifecycle, as well as virus epidemiology and environmental virology. I have experience in both molecular and environmental virology with sufficient competency in bioinformatics to analyze ‘big data’
