Research Interests

  • Understanding the evolutionary trajectory of primate genes involved in host-virus interactions
  • Functionally characterizing the consequences of rapidly evolving codons during viral replication using mammalian tissue culture
  • Discovering novel antiviral restriction factors in primates using PAML positive selection analysis
  • Probing the fate of duplicated genes by constructing chimeras from deeply divergent species (i.e. fungi and archaea)
