Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the function-structure correlations of virus replication and assembly. I am using the dsRNA virus model system of bacteriophage phi6 to demonstrate the virus assembly process through its life cycle (e.g. to build up virus particles in the test tube step-by-step). I am also interested in the virus infection process and virus-host interaction.
