Personal profile

Biography

I am a research fellow at the Institute of Vector-Borne Disease (IVbD).  I'm currently studying the evolution of arboviruses (dengue, Zika, and chikungunya) for the purposes of monitoring viral resistance in the context of mosquito-control strategies implemented by the World Mosquito Program (WMP).

I have previously worked at the Australian Animal Health Laboratories (AAHL), CSIRO and the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin where my research has focussed on highly pathogenic avian influenza, seasonal influenza, Henipaviruses, and Ebola viruses. I am particularly interested in virus-host interactions and the mechanisms underpinning asymptomatic infections in reservoir hosts.

Research interests

- Viral pathogenesis & evolution

- Virus and reservoir-host interactions

- Molecular virology

- Building better bioinformatics pipelines to discover viral variants

- RNA viruses, mainly Influenza, Henipaviruses, Filoviruses & Flaviviruses
