My research interests focus on the long-term goal of developing novel methods for controlling arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) based on understanding at the molecular level the virus-vector interactions occurring in the mosquito. Arboviruses must replicate in both a vertebrate and invertebrate host, while the vertebrate infection is acute and often associated with disease, continual transmission of virus is dependent on the establishment of a persistently infected state in the arthropod host. Understanding how arboviruses establish persistent infections in mosquitoes could have applications in controlling the impact of vector-borne viral diseases on public health.
