Research synopsis: 

I completed my PhD in Cell, Molecular & Developmental Biology under the direction of James Munro, PhD.

I used single-molecule fluorescence methods to understand the structural dynamics of viral components. My work centered on the Ebola virus envelope glycoprotein, and its role in membrane fusion. I focused on the various molecular changes involved in this process.

I am now completing the fourth year of medical school.
