CURRENT POSITION

I am currently working on the novel Mosinovirus, a mosquito-specific member of the Nodaviridae family, where I identified and characterized its suppressor of RNA interference in mosquitoes. In addition, I’m establishing the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) technology in human, Drosophila, and mosquito cell lines in our lab.
