I have over twelve years of research experience in both basic and applied research, encompassing skills in Cell and Molecular Biology, Immunology, Virology, and Vaccinology. My work to date has deepened my dedication to a career in applied science. I am intrigued by the complexities of virus-host interactions and drawn to the challenge of developing ways to safely and efficiently modulate the immune system to protect against infectious disease.

Specialties:
- Viral pathogenesis and vaccine development
- Cell based assays, molecular biology, and bioinformatics

Postdoctoral Fellow (previously held)
Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine
Virology, Immunology & Microbiology
