I study primary macrophages as targets of viral infection, including HIV and SARS-CoV2. I am using advanced ex vivo analyses, unbiased and targeted molecular profiling and mouse genetics to dissect the roles of macrophages in driving viral persistence, disease progression, and tissue disruption during infections in humans and humanized mice.
