Research Interests

My research interests focus on the dynamics of the self-assembly and packaging of viruses as well as the ejection of genome during infection. The ultimate goal of my work is to utilize models to explore the mechanisms of these processes at the molecular scale. Combining these small time and length scale observations with experimental work at biologically relevant time and length scales, we will develop a comprehensive picture of virus assembly and subsequent infection. This work will be applicable to custom-building viruses for gene-delivery and for exploring ways to prevent the propagation of viruses.
