Research Description: 
I am interested in how viruses interact with, and alter, host responses during infection. Particularly I study how a modified oncolytic poliovirus (PVS-RIPO) elicits and manipulates stress responses in cancer cells, and what this dynamic means for PVS-RIPO's efficacy as a cancer immunotherapy.
