Research Interests

Biology of T cells during chronic viral infections

“I am studying how T cells adapt their metabolism to the challenges of controlling a chronic viral infection. Understanding the factors that underlie T cell function will be instrumental to the design of strategies to combat a variety of public health issues including HCV, HIV, and cancer.”
