Our research focuses on the development of adaptive immune responses, protein evolution and the interactions between host and pathogen using a combination of biophysical, biochemical and molecular virology techniques. We are structural biologists who bring mechanistic and quantitative approaches to address fundamental problems in virology and immunology. We primarily study orthomyxo- and flaviviruses but our interests extend to emerging viruses (e.g. alpha-, arena-, bunya- and filoviruses) and other pathogens. We are strong believers in collaboration and are always open to pursuing new directions and pathogens!
