“I am interested in studying host-pathogen interactions that underlie infectious disease state and recovery. To that end, viral pathology, immunovirology, and drug discovery are all research fields that I intend to pursue during graduate studies. The questions I would like to understand are what specific mechanisms viruses use in order to infect, replicate, and most importantly evade immunosuppression, and how we might be able to develop an immune response capable of countering such mechanisms. Ultimately, I hope my research will be able to uncover novel therapeutic strategies able to protect or cure against viruses.”
