My research projects are focused on exploring variations of conventional methods used in virology and cell biology. I seek to answer questions about virus-host interactions using the most advanced methods in molecular biology. My interests are to understand virus behavior before, during, and after infection with regard to the complexity of interactions that are involved in the host environment.
