Postdoctoral scholar, University of Southern California

My research interest revolves around deciphering the role of innate immunity in triggering the pathogenesis associated with mosquito-borne viruses such as Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and Zika virus (ZIKV). In particular, I am interested in studying how the heterogeneity of monocytes and macrophages serves as a double-edged sword in modulating the disease outcomes.
