Virus molecular evolution & epidemiology

I am a computational biologist with interests in public health. My research mainly revolves around molecular evolution and how its trace can be used to understand pathogen-host interactions and infectious disease spread. I collaborate with experimental, clinical, and theoretical scientists and public health experts across the globe. My current research focuses on modeling HIV evolution both on the within-host level and on the epidemic level, and especially on the connection between these levels.
