    Fellow in Medicine - Med/Infectious Diseases

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research is focused on better understanding the causes of acute febrile illness in Grenada in collaboration with the Windward Research and Education Foundation (WINDREF). We are conducting an acute febrile illness cohort and performing diagnostics for common arboviral infections including dengue, Zika, and chikungunya viruses. We will use this data to develop better estimates for the incidence of arboviral infections on the island and identify epidemiologic risk factors which could be the target of preventative interventions. This study is also assessing a novel diagnostic system for antigen detections in collaboration with Dr. Ali Yanik at UCSC. We will be testing these samples for hantavirus infections or antibodies to determine if hantaviral infections are clinically important causes of disease in Grenada. In addition, we are performing a pilot ecologic survey of rodents and bats and will attempt to identify circulating hantaviruses in these species.

    Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur basic research program focuses on understanding the roles of virus-host interactions in viral infection and disease pathogenesis via molecular and systems virology single cell approaches. This program is combined with translational efforts to apply this knowledge for the development of broad-spectrum host-centered antiviral approaches to combat emerging viral infections, including dengue, coronaviruses, encephalitic alphaviruses, and Ebola, and means to predict progression to severe disease.
