Research Interests

I am a clinical academic working in the Disease Dynamics group. My research interests lie at the interface between mathematics and molecular virology. I work to develop and apply novel signal processing algorithms to viral genetic data with a view to discovery of previously unrecognised regions of structural and/or functional importance in viruses. This allows us to understand better the life cycle and pathogenicity of these agents and so focus on how we can disrupt the life cycle and avoid, attenuate or cure disease. At present my focus is on flaviviruses (including, amongst others, dengue, Zika, yellow fever and tick-borne encephalitis viruses); I also have some ongoing work into HIV.
