Overview

I'm a postdoc within the division of Infection & Immunity, currently working on projects related to SARS-CoV-2. My research interests lie in understanding the fundamental mechanisms underlying the replication of positive-strand RNA viruses, particularly the process of recombination and how it contributes to virus evolution.
