Research Interests: Mosquito-borne flaviviruses such as dengue virus and Zika virus are a source of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. We study how these viruses hijack host machinery through virus-host protein interactions to better understand their replication and develop therapeutics. We use complementary techniques of global proteomics, genetics, and high-throughput sequencing to tackle these questions.
