I am a molecular biologist (Ph.D) with a strong background in genetics, microbiology, molecular virology, parasitology, and prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomics. I have been involved in teaching a number of different classes and workshops. I am co-author of two patents and 38 publications in scientific peer reviewed journals. Our team discovered the mouse flavivirus resistance gene, submitted to GenBank over 200 original DNA sequences, assembled the first draft of the whole genome sequence of the rat lungworm and found significant associations between several innate immunity genes and severity of flavivirus-induced diseases in humans.
