My research is focused on viral immunity and the interferon response in the skin, with particular interest in papillomavirus infections. I am interested in learning the different innate immune pathways involved in viral recognition in canine keratinocytes, the target cell for papillomavirus infections, and the mechanisms behind how papillomaviruses can dampen the immune response to escape detection.
