The overall theme of my career has been the study of virus: host interactions of important human pathogens. I have previously worked on:
I am interested in expanding my research to include other human and animal coronaviruses as well as other viruses in general. With an aim to discover common features that could be targeted by novel therapeutics for use against multiple viruses, in particular any future outbreak of a novel virus.
