Specific Research Interests: Host-Pathogen Interactions, Vaccine Development

My research focuses on host-pathogen interactions involving respiratory viruses.  More specifically, I am interested in studying the replication, pathogenesis, and transmission of respiratory viruses.  Areas of research include studies on humoral responses to influenza vaccines, development of model systems to study the effectiveness of vaccines against respiratory viruses, studies on virus regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses, and studies examining adaptation of viruses to new hosts.
