I study the evolutionarily conserved mechanisms by which mosquito-borne viruses evade immune signalling in both the insect vector and the vertebrate host. I am particularly interested in whether dengue virus, arguably the most significant mosquito-borne virus infecting human, uses conserved mechanisms to evade immune recognition in humans and the insect vector, and how conserved such mechanisms are across the flaviviruses.
Previous Postdoc Experience:
I completed my PhD at Imperial College London under the supervision of Dr. Gillian Elliott, where I studied the protein-protein interactions contributing to the assembly of the herpes simplex virus type I particle.
