Biography

Since joining the University of Glasgow in 2008 as a molecular virologist, I have accumulated extensive experience leading research in viral genomics and transcriptomics. I am passionate about innovation and implementation of sequencing solutions applied to viral systems, while maintaining a focus on quality.

Previously, I worked on gene therapy applied to vascular diseases, where I developed targeted nanovesicles containing viral vectors, for the delivery of therapeutic genes.

Currently lead the CVR Genomics team.

I lead the CVR Genomics team, which provides the CVR community and collaborators with expertise in high-throughput sequencing, aiming to contribute to the understanding of viruses.

My current research focuses on viral hepatitis and respiratory viruses; I am also driving the development of sequencing solutions for viral emergence and discovery.
