My interest is directed at understanding of host recognition and viral evasion upon viral infection, specifically during delivery of the viral genome to the host cell. Using RNAi and yeast genetics, I will explore novel protein interactions involved in viral DNA sensing and viral evasion immediately following infection and during viral genome replication.
