Lecturer in Molecular Virology, Lancaster University

I am virologist with research experience on virus pathobiology, viral antagonism of immune responses and host factors that limit virus replication.

Research in my laboratory focuses on understanding molecular mechanisms of inter-species pathogenesis of viruses (i.e zoonotic viruses from birds and bats). Specifically, using model influenza and Nipah viruses, my research aim to explore host and viral RNA biology (sensing – interferon responses, epigenetics and gene regulation) and define structural and functional differences in human and animals (birds and bats), which determine the transmission dynamics of animal viruses to human.
