Research Interests & Expertise:

Biology of human-tropic viruses (viral hepatitis, AIDS, Dengue fever or yellow fever)

Identify and characterize fundamental human immunological mechanisms and human-virus interactions that govern viral pathogenicity and immunogenicity during virus infection

Understand how human non-coding RNAs modulate the cell-intrinsic immune detection of flavivirus (such as Dengue virus, Zika virus and yellow fever virus)

Identify human proteins that regulate flavivirus entry into their target cells
