Scholarly Interests

My primary research focus is genomics. I am particularly interested in comparative genomics: learning about the dynamics underlying human diseases by studying their counterparts in animals. One of the goals of my research is to identify and characterize environmental and genetic interactions that contribute to neurological conditions resulting from antecedent viral infections. I am particularly interested in identifying how genetic background influences disease diversity following infection by a neurotropic virus. This research is expected to increase knowledge about virally-influenced complex neurological conditions in humans and ultimately lead to the development of novel predictive models.
