About

Interested in virology and structural biology. My main focus is on understanding the molecular assembly of replication and transcription viral machinery, as well as RNA capping mechanisms. My main projects are on Arenavirdae, Phenuiviridae and Coronaviridae. I am also interested in drug design against nucleases and development of molecules to block the assembly of theses machineries.
