Postdoctoral Researcher
I am interested in host/pathogen interactions and have spent my PhD understanding how viruses manipulate host transcription. I think it’s amazing how viruses co-opt host machinery and pathways with such limited coding capacity. Studying viral manipulation of host processes is my favorite because you learn both about the virus and the underlying host biology. Outside of lab I spend time biking, hiking, reading and exploring with my daughter.
