Research Interest

Research within my laboratory focuses on three main themes:

  1. coronavirus-host interactions in wildlife reservoir species, such as bats
  2. coronavirus-host interactions in spillover species, such as humans, and
  3. viral vaccine and therapeutic development.

Specifically, we study two highly pathogenic coronaviruses, Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

We harness data from our virus-host interaction studies to develop next generation countermeasures against emerging viruses.
