Research Interests: Small RNA Roles During Viral Infection

My primary project is investigating how HIV-1 interacts with the regulatory microRNA machinery. I seek to determine if HIV encodes any microRNAs and what cellular microRNAs, if any, regulate viral RNAs. I am also investigating small RNAs derived from other viruses including influenza A, foamy viruses, and herpes simplex virus 1.

Personal Interests: My primary hobbies are located outdoors and include biking, hiking, and gardening. Indoors I raise insects, watch anime, lift weights, and find what it takes to brew good beer.
