Areas of Interest

New nd emerging viruses, Arboviruses, Virology, Immunology, Antibody structure and function


My clinical passion is caring for individuals suffering from all types of infectious diseases across a broad clinical spectrum. Seeing and taking care of patients is very rewarding and gives me an important perspective of the patient and healthcare side of medicine that I can apply to my research projects. As a clinician scientist, I have developed a research interest in the morbidity and global public health burden of new and emerging viruses. My current research interests include studying human immune responses to Zika and dengue viruses, with a specific focus on B cell and antibody responses.
