Biography

Hailing from Canada, I am currently undertaking an MD/PhD at Wolfson College.  My PhD focuses on using molecular bioinformatic techniques including molecular dynamics (MD) in order to better understand how and why Influenza and other viruses evolve in the way they do.  This imporved understanding will enable us to produce more effective vaccines against these pathogens.

Research

Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Pathogens, Virology, Influenza, Xenobiology, Vaccine design, Antiviral design
